in thread Issue with env variables set through dos batch

There is no DOS anymore.

The Windows command prompt is like one of the ~unix shells. for example:

#------------------------------------------ my $operatingSystem = $^O; my $windows = "MSWin32"; my $unix = "hpux"; print "Running under ${operatingSystem} environment.\n\n"; my $pathSeparator = ""; if ( $operatingSystem eq $windows ) { $pathSeparator = "\\"; } else { $pathSeparator = "/"; } #------------------------------------------
is not needed!

pathSeparator of "/" works on Windows and ~Unix (LINUX, etc..)

Where it really matters, the logic above to determine the OS is woefully inadequate.

    I really appreciate your input..however it does not answer my question on the environment variables. I'm not really concerned about the part of the perl script with the check for the os...I'm not using that $pathSeparator variable anywhere.
