I've used windows scripting host a couple of times to super-charge some vbscript files. It's nice because you can mix and match languages in a single file. I've also used it to create windows components that you can register and later use with Win32::OLE or VBScript CreateObject() methods etc. It's nice, so long as you don't mind your scripts only being able to run on Win32.
Here's a small template .wsf that works on my system...
<Job ID="MyPerlWSH"> <script language=PerlScript> # Perl Script begins here use strict; use vars qw($WScript $WShell); $WScript->Echo("Hello World!"); # Perl Script ends here </script> </Job>
Your wsh files need to have a .wsf extension. You'll also notices that things like "print" won't work in a .wsf file, so you need to use $WScript->Echo()

Since you are running ActivePerl, you can have a look at the documentation for a bit more help. Look in the left-hand frame for "Windows Scripting".

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
