Command prompt q.
What command do you type under W7?
Have you installed Perl to the new laptop? Which one (Strawberry, ActivePerl...)?
Thanks for responding
The command I type is: "perl process2.pl *filename*.txt > *filename*.htm"
I'm using perl to convert a text file to an htm file and to format it a certain way
'process2.pl' is the file that contains the work done by my friend
I have installed the latest version of ActivePerl
Well, under cmd.exe that is an error, so what "Command Processor" are you using?
I'm using the command prompt which now seems to go under the name "Windows Command Processor" (v 6.1.xx)
It's that little window with the black background
perl process2.pl *filename*.txt > *filename*.htm
What happens if you leave out the redirection?
No, sorry, I just meant to indicate that the actual filename goes in there.
I should have said something like: "perl process2.pl abcd.txt > abcd.htm"
(Didn't realise i was using convention for wildcard!))
