OzzyOsbourne has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I'm running Activestate's distribution on a win2k pro box. I have no problems running Perl at all.

Has anyone successfully used Perl via the Windows Scripting host (WSH)? When I very simplistic, microsoft supplied "Hello world" scripts, explorer crashes. I'm not posting any code samples, b/c it doesn't seem to matter what the samples contain.

If it's possible, I would prefer to use Perl with the WSH, but if it requires that I brush up on VBScript, b/c Microsoft prefers VBScipt, I'll have to do that. I'd just prefer to use Perl.

OzzyOsbourne senses he will get, no 3 "Use a real O/S" replies...And the body is in the barn near the water and the fat man.
