Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I know, I know, but this is essentially a Perl question. I have a <program>.pl that I want to run from the Windows Task Scheduler. I don't know how to say 'Perl <program>.pl. Is there a way to tell windows....when you see a *.pl, run it with perl?

    I just made task scheduler run a batch file to start the perl scripts and called it a day.

      I found that: c:\perl64\bin\perl.exe <program>.pl works OK. Now I have another problem...looks like I can't send email from the program run by the scheduler. thanks for your suggestion
        Hi there,
        I have had the opportunity of having to do this recently. Does the script automatically send email without the windows task scheduler? If we see your code we might be able to help more. I have used MIME::Entity and MIME::Lite to send emails via perl script
        my $mail = MIME::Lite->new( From=> ', To=> '', Subject=> "Hello email ", Type=>'multipart/mixed' ); $mail->attach( Type => 'application/x-tar', Encoding => 'base64', Path => 'C:\path\to\file.tar', Filename => "file.tar" ); MIME::Lite->send('smtp','',Debug=>0); $mail->send;
