Although there are perl tools to read directly from your input file: Spreadsheet::XLSX (it comes with an example that will get you up and running in no time, just remember to do "cpanm Spreadsheet::XLSX" to install the extra libraries), I think it is better to save the spreadsheet as csv and read it in with something like Text::CSV.

you can implement it in pure perl, or mix a bit of .bat code, to bring up a notepad with your results.

As for something that types in the results, and alt-tabs to excel and notepad individually, try another language, specialized in Windows, for example Autoit3, and that has a working multiping example.

However, if you want an automated, lightweight, app that runs each 10 minutes, and report if thresholds are out of range... do it in Perl. :)

There are some perl GUI's... but it is not for beginners.

so for example:

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
