Perl works. I am, however, surprised that you do.

Since I'm not currently employed (rifted), I have some time for this nonsense. I suggest you repeat these mantras:

  • Perl is not DOS. DOS is a (primitive) operating system.
  • Perl (not PERL) is a language.
  • Solaris is not DOS. Solaris is a very robust operating system.
  • BAT files are specific to DOS.

Now, answer this question: given this code: saxpy would you expect it to compile under VB? If not, why do you expect BAT files to be interpreted by a completely different operating system?


Insisting on perfect safety is for people who don't have the balls to live in the real world.
