in thread Win32::OLE and Word

Best of both worlds:
Adapted from Win32::ole and MSWord:

# If Word is already running, then use the existing instance, # and leave it running when we are done. # Otherwise, start a new instance of Word, and close it when # we are done. use strict; use warnings; use Win32::OLE; my $Word; eval {$Word = Win32::OLE->GetActiveObject('Word.Application')}; die "Word not installed: $@" if $@; unless (defined $Word) { $Word = Win32::OLE->new('Word.Application', sub {$_[0]->Quit}) or die "Oops, cannot start Word"; } $Word->{'Visible'} = 1; # If you want to see what's going on
