in thread Perl Program Exits.

I couldn't find how to edit it in properties though.

I'm not aware of any mechanism using the properties to prevent the window closing when the program finishes.

My 'fix' simply delays the program finishing for a very long time or until you manually close the window.

There is wperl.exe which can do something similar I think, but I've never used and can't find any documentation on how to use it.

    wperl.exe does the opposite. It doesn't prevent the window from disappearing, it prevents it from ever appearing. It's used for GUI scripts where you do not want the console to show.
