Anonymous Monk,

So far both Nick Clark and Dave Mitchell have recommended cautiously engaging P5P.

Can you please give me more information about why you think they will react negatively?

Thanks,
~ Will

    1. You want to take away their control, Perl is whatever the interp folks says it is
    2. Larry's stack machine architecture never turned out any good, and they've been forced to live with it and defend it
    3. You are a for profit business trying to embrace extend and extinguish their Perl
    4. Many P5P who spent decades with the Perl source code do not want all their work and knowledge they learned to have been in vain
    5. C#, PHP, Python, Ruby, and Java have multiple compilers/interpreters, Perl does not, thats makes Perl special
      haha

[Corion]: thezip: start "some title" path\to\that\ application, but that will open another console window
[Corion]: thezip: If you want to confuse your users, use system(1, "that\\command" );, which will make Perl launch it in the background
[Corion]: That will keep the console window open even though the user can't type into it anymore
[thezip]: So I have a script that generates a log file. After script completion, I want tohave VIM open this logfile.
[thezip]: i don't get the command line "back" until I close VIM. No what I want to happen...
[thezip]: I currently don't have access to CYGWIN, else I'd just do a tail -f on the logfile.
