Description:

Just thought I would post this, since it took me a while to figure out. I wanted to use perl2exe to create a perl windows exe that I could drag files onto. That's simple enough. Then I wanted to use perl/tk for the gui, and turn off the console. again, this is easy with the "-gui" option to perl2exe.

But then I wanted to use backticks to run a command and NOT have it show up a seperate window each time I ran a command (in this case metaflac.exe).

I finally found the answer here:
