in reply to Perl and the Windows Scripting host

I've never been there myself, but do you use ActiveState's PerlScript as opposed to regular Perl? I think only the former can be used w/ the WSH.

And if you can be so kind to explain why you'd prefer using the WSH instead of a normal shell, I'd be interested (I hardly now what WSH is). <troll>However, I won't ask why you prefer to run W2k instead of a real OS, I know some people are forced to by their management ;-)</troll>

    Yes, it is PerlScript.

    The reason that I have found for going to the windows scripting host is that it is more logistically flexible than a simple DOS batch file beacuse it uses scripting languages like PerlScript and VBScript. This should allow for combining of scripts, etc.

    The reason that I was given was: Corporate directive.

    OzzyOsbourne sees only one troll comment. Maybe the body is not near the water at all...
