Re^4: Command prompt q.
in thread Command prompt q.
Try typing C:\perl64\bin\perl -v at the prompt
Thanks. When I came back to work on this today, I found that I had a window with simply 'command prompt' at the top border and everything looking like it should.
And sure enough, when I entered the usual command, the program did what it should.
So my thanks to you and the others for talking me through this. Much appreciated. Jon
