[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.
[Corion]: thezip: If you want to open vim and can live with opening a second console window, use start "The results" vim.exe c:\path\to\logfile .log
