in reply to running a script from Windows Desktop

By creating a shortcut using "C:\perl\bin\perl.exe c:\somedir\" you are effectively assuming that the user has perl on their desktop.

If they do not know what a command line is why should they have perl installed..? (Unless of course you have installed it.)

Another way would be to compile the perl source using something like Perl2exe and just copy the .exe and .dll to the users machine after which creating a shortcut would be as simple as drag and drop.

Of all the things I've lost in my life, its my mind I miss the most.
