I am not very good with dos though. I can't seem to switch to the perl folder.

As a previous monk suggested, you do not need to go to the perl folder, you need to go to the folder where your perl script is, in your case where example.pl is. I like to think I am good with the Windows command line, but here's a tool I love: Command Prompt Here.

Create a new notepad file on your desktop (call it cmdhere.reg or something), put the text from the link in it as per the instructions there, save it, close it, double-click it and click OK to merge it into your registry. Then you can use Windows Explorer to find your perl script and then simply right-click on the folder your script is in to open up a command prompt window where the prompt is already at your script's folder!
