Perl under Windows has the great capability of automating other programs through the Win32::OLE module. That way you can remotely control MS Word the same as with Visual Basic for Applications through the Office Object Model.

The easiest way to get a (Visual Basic) stub of what you want to do is:

  1. Practice what you want to do with the program manually
  2. Switch on the macro recorder
  3. Do what you want to automate one final time
  4. Stop the macro recorder
  5. Look at the recorded macros
  6. Convert the recorded Visual Basic macro to Perl

Conversion of the recorded Visual Basic macro to Perl is a fairly mechanical process, and what you need to know beyond that should be explained in the Win32::OLE documentation.

perl -MHTTP::Daemon -MHTTP::Response -MLWP::Simple -e ' ; # The $d = new HTTP::Daemon and fork and getprint $d->url and exit;#spider ($c = $d->accept())->get_request(); $c->send_response( new #in the HTTP::Response(200,$_,$_,qq(Just another Perl hacker\n))); ' # web
