> Windows is clearly superior to Linux,

You mean because on Windows you need to put the code in double quotes which don't collide with single quotes?

The best thing would be a Perl shell without the need to quote at all and calling OS commands inside out.

update

the second best thing is perl <RET>

Perl reads from STDIN then, Ctrl-d or __END__ ends it. Works on both plattforms.

C:\>perl -w print $x ^D Name "main::x" used only once: possible typo at - line 2. Use of uninitialized value $x in print at - line 1. C:\>
