in reply to How long 'tween now and then?

There is a command in Win2K called 'Runas'.
Do a 'runas /?' for the specifics, but I've used it often to call the 'at' command under a different name.
Not a Perl solution, true, but I use it to run my Perl scripts.
Hope that helps.

    Actually, I investigated going that route as well, but you can't programmatically (through redirects or echo 'n' pipe) send the account password to 'runas' anymore.

[GrandFather]: I'm fighting with a third party device our software is to support. The documentation for the device's SDK is quite a lot less than average and most of today was spent ...
[GrandFather]: discovering that one of the sensors for the device lies about the gain range it is using!
[GrandFather]: However, by the end of the day I had discovered its deceptions and now have it working correctly, so yes, all's well that ends well. :-D
[Corion]: GrandFather: Ah, (hardware) APIs - I have a similar situation with Chrome and its API... It is fairly underdocumented and I guess I have to hunt...
[Corion]: ... down supposedly working code to find out what I'm supposed to do
[GrandFather]: I haven't any "working code" to inspect! I have to find ways to generate reference signals then check the numbers I get at the far end match.
[GrandFather]: That's ok when the signal is a voltage, but there are three axis accelerometers, gyroscopes and magnetometers in these things! A little invention is needed at times!
