That's great work.

Thanks :)

What I would like to do is access the Perl interpreter from within vim. With ruby, one can use the rubyfile command. From vim's command mode, you could type :rubyfile example.rb to execute a ruby script. But how would you do this with Perl?

I've got rather limited experience in this area, but maybe :help perldo will help you. I guess you'll need to have Vim compiled with perl support.

    Thanks, but perldo is a range command, so that won't work.
      :perl do "filename.pl"

      :perl lets you do arbitrary expressions.

        That did the trick. Thanks.
