in thread ActivePerl - perl.exe works, wperl.exe does not...

This works...

Given that I can run perl.exe with no child window, I can scrap wperl.exe... ;)

Clearly there's some other difference between the two binaries - I have other wperl scripts that run fine, it was just theNet::SFTP::Foreign line:

my $sftp = Net::SFTP::Foreign->new( $host, user => $user, password => $password, ssh_cmd => 'plink' );

that wperl choked on that perl.exe handled without a problem...

Thanks much for your help! Scott...

    The difference is STDIN/STDOUT/STDERR/

    wperl.exe, being a windows GUI application, doesn't have these

    perl.exe, being a windows console (cmd.exe) application, does have these, but it also has a console window

    So you start wperl because it has no console window, make sure the children get hidden, then launch a hidden perl.exe , because it has a console and STDIN/STDOUT/STDERR

    Apparently Net::SFTP ... needs a STDIN/STDOUT/STDERR for pipes and such

      Lovely, thank You..:-)

[ozboomer]: Howdy, all.. Trying this once more... Not really a perl question :(... but I don't know how to even title my query (more...)
[ozboomer]: There's a text file with lots of sections in it, like an '.ini/.conf' file. Each section can be 'used' or 'unused' by its application (more...)
[ozboomer]: Some folk want to use the text file as 'storage', keeping ALL items in it (a database); others call it an 'active document' that should only contain 'in-use' sections. Is there a 'good practice' for this sort of thing?
