in reply to Win32: Shell extension for viewing POD (proof of concept)

I was just searching by Google perl win32 shell because I just migrate a software from a ActiveState Perl version from 1999.

There is

use Win32::Shell;

with typical calls like

Win32::Shell::Execute( "open", "bathfile.bat", "", ".\\", "SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED" ); Win32::Shell::Execute( "open", $path::convert, "$colors $geometry -interlace plane -comment \"Chevalier Roland Mösl\" $url::path_use.bmp $target", ".\\", "SW_HIDE" );

opening batch files or other programms

Now I need a actual version for this 11 years old module.

    Hi,
    I haven't managed to track it down. There's no Win32::Shell on cpan or backpan - according to the Win32-GUI-1.06 FAQ (as of June 2001) it was available only as a ppm package from ActiveState. That was probably the case back in June 2001, but it seems ActiveState no longer provides that ppm package. (If they do, I couldn't find it.)

    Presumably there's a recommendation as an alternative to Win32::Shell, but I don't know what that recommendation would be. Perhaps if you start a new thread here titled (something like) "What happened to Win32::Shell", you might attract the attention of someone who knows a bit more about it.

    Or, you could post to the perl-win32-users mailing list (which is hosted by ActiveState) and see if anyone there can help out.

    Cheers,
    Rob
