    Hello Jenda,

    ShellExecute does the job nicely, and Win32::FileOp looks to be a useful module.

    Unfortunately, when I tried to install it on my system (Windows 8.1, 64-bit), I got a gmake error similar to the one reported in Bug #71759. XLAT’s fork on GitHub (version “0.16.03”) fixed the problem for me. I note that although the status for Bug #71759 is “open,” it is also marked as “Fixed in: 0.16.02,” which would seem to be incorrect.

    Just a heads-up,

    Athanasius <°(((><contra mundum Iustus alius egestas vitae, eros Piratica,
