( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Tutorials like these are for my dad or brother, who have never fiddled with another programming language for more than a few minutes.

Is this how you talk to your dad? And isn't that they don't aspire becoming programmers the reason for not having fiddled with programming languages? Are they, for some reason, unable to read books like Beginning Perl?

Anyway, I recommend that you let them read a good existing tutorial. It saves you a lot of time, this monastery weird tutorials and lets your dad and brother learn Perl without getting to think programming is for teletubbies. I suggest http://www.steve.gb.com/perl/tutorial.html.

    [LanX]: Question: starting a script from an icon in Windows, but after C-c the window closes ... what I want is to restart in the cmd.exe. Recommendations?
    [Corion]: LanX: What do you mean by "restart in the cmd.exe" ?
    [Corion]: Do you want to launch a script and keep the command prompt/console window open?
    [Corion]: Do you want to wait for a key press before closing the window?
    [LanX]: I want the command line in the history
    [tye]: -Mouse
    [Corion]: Option a) would mean launching cmd.exe /k c:\path\to\ batchfile- launching-perl- script.cmd. Option b) would be to add pause as the last line of said batch file.
    [LanX]: First day after holidays ... and already stressed by the fact that colleagues changed stuff without communication ... apparently I'm the only one trying to fight entropy
