mascip,

Not knowing your environment, these suggestion are just guesstimates.

I usually work on *nix, so I opened a XP laptop to verify this will work, and it did. so here goes.

I opened two command windows (cmd.exe) on the XP, ran Vim in one, and executed the edited Perl script in the other. I could edit with Vim and could interact with the running script by just switching windows.

For my *nix environments, I run 5 x-windows by default. 3 x-windows are used for Perl programming:

  • #1 for editing the Perl script
  • #2 for execution the Perl script
  • #3 for checking results of the Perl script, such as log files, etc.

The other 2 windows are used for doing system admin functions as needed. This way I can be interrupted for an emergency, and when things are fixed, I can go back to programming without missing a beat.

This may not be a solution to your problem, but it may help.

Good Luck!
