You can fix that by changing the default action associated with the .pl extension. To do that you need to go to: explorer->tools->folder options->File Types->Extensions->PL->Advanced->Open->Edit

If you set that to something like c:\Perl\bin\perl.exe" "%1" %* you will automatically invoke the perl interpreter rather than notepad.

From this interface you can also add a separate option to be shown on right-click context menus. For example, you can set "Edit" as an option that uses notepad, but have it default to "Open" with the interpreter.

    Keep in mind that, at least on Win2k, that %* at the end will tell Windows to feed the entire rest of the line to your script, including redirects. So if you tried this:

    .\ > anotherfile.txt
    @ARGV would look like this:
    @ARGV = ('>', 'anotherfile.txt');
    and the output would not be redirected. For that reason, I always use the perl version on Windows, which will work correctly with redirects.
