( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I tried namely
perldoc Win32::Process
! The main problem is I can not 'invoke' pdf files directly using it.

OTOH I've almost solved this by determining of associated to '.pdf' command line and invoking that file. So, following works (with console window appearing for half of a second and then disappearing):

use Win32::Process; sub ErrorReport{ print Win32::FormatMessage(Win32::GetLastError()); } my ($ftype) = `assoc .pdf`=~/=(.*)/; print $ftype,"\n"; my ($apath) = `ftype $ftype`=~/=(.*)/; print $apath,"\n"; my $procobj; $apath=~s/"%1"$//; $apath=~s/^"//; $apath=~s/"\s*$//; Win32::Process::Create( $procobj, "$apath", "x D:\\WORK\\Documentation\\cd-writing\\perl-technology\\root-cd-tk\ +\files\\PSAX1250_IG_R610_Iss1-mp.pdf", 0, NORMAL_PRIORITY_CLASS, "." ) || die ErrorReport();
This works good. May be it is needed to search in registry instead of `assoc` and `ftype`. When I'll come with a final solution I'll probably report this in 'code' section.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
