Oh, right. What I wrote would be valid for something like a bash shell but not for anything on Windows where it doesn't understand anything like heredocs. Since win32 perl only pretends to use fork, I found myself quickly unable to write a native CreateProcess call and then write to its stdin. I dunno. I'm just not a Windows programmer.
