I am only asking for wisdom for a starting perl programmer, i don't think i deserve that reply, but maybe then I'm doing something wrong.

I'm an experienced perl programmer. The first thing I do is JFGI. It should be an instinct. You can't be an expert on every single field of computing, but then you don't have to be, you just have to search.

[Corion]: thezip: start "some title" path\to\that\ application, but that will open another console window
[Corion]: thezip: If you want to confuse your users, use system(1, "that\\command" );, which will make Perl launch it in the background
[Corion]: That will keep the console window open even though the user can't type into it anymore
[thezip]: So I have a script that generates a log file. After script completion, I want tohave VIM open this logfile.
[thezip]: i don't get the command line "back" until I close VIM. No what I want to happen...
[thezip]: I currently don't have access to CYGWIN, else I'd just do a tail -f on the logfile.
