in thread Win7, ASSOCiation , and @ARGV

BTW, did you see BrowserUK's Re^5: Win7, ASSOCiation , and @ARGV?

Yes, after I'd posted my above reply. But frankly, it's way over my head.

But FWIW again, here's the full output of what I get from perl -V:

Re^8: Win7, ASSOCiation , and @ARGV
by Anonymous Monk on Oct 11, 2012 at 12:14 UTC
    I've had the problem that if I executed on Win7:
    perl a b c
    the program got the parameters (in @ARGV) correctly, but if I executed: a b c
    the program would NOT receive the parameters. I searched the web for a solution and soon found that it was no ActiveState perl problem but more likely a filetype association problem in Windows (Win7). However all solutions changing the
    assoc .pl=Perl
    and the
    ftype Perl="C:\Perl\bin\perl.exe" "%1" %*
    or changing stuff in the registry still did not solve the puzzle for me. I did notice that the assoc .pl was not used somehow because if I added assoc .plx=Perl and renamed my program to myprog.plx
    myprog.plx a b c
    worked perfectly ! So then I read this problem on the Microsoft forum were the Win7 "feature" Default Programs was mentioned, I found the solution to my problem:

    Open Default Programs by clicking the Start button , and then click "Default Programs".

    Select "Associate a file type or protocol with a program" and select ".pl" and click on "Change program". There was already a Perl Command Line Interpreter specified as Recommended Programs but instead I clicked on Browse and selected the Perl.exe myself. After closing the "Associate a file type ..." screen, a b c
    executed like a charm, all parameters were correctly retrieved by my program. Hope that helps ...
