jearsh has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

dear monks,

i'm new to perl. the OS i plan on working with is Windows 98-XP. what I am looking to do is have a "console" perl window run in the background. Whether it is a service or not doesn't matter. yet, i want the perl script i write to run without the user knowing it.

thank you for any input.
