ActiveState Perl on XP: Help with command prompt

Sorry if this has been covered before, but I can't search on "XP" and Perl (2 is too few letters).

I've been happily running Perl with my DOS command prompt for years. Now I've been upgraded to a system with XP. So I loaded a version of ActiveState's compiled Perl for Windows.

And now I can't figure out how to get the same command prompt, DOS-like interface that gives me warnings, debugging info, etc. All I can see to do is run my Perl scripts by clicking on them in a Windows folder; but then they just run, giving no info on screen.

When I try running Perl from a command line, I get a DOS-looking window that either just seems to sit there; or, if I do something like perl -v, gives a flash and disappears.

I miss my text-based interface! Anyone know if it's possible to get that back under XP?

Try running cmd and then run your perl scripts from there.
You should also be able to modify the execution of perl scripts, in explorer bring up the options and check for file types, you can then edit/add functions such as run in cmd.

Windows help should provide you with more details on this (file associations).

SharonM,

similarly, you could choose Start > Run and type cmd.exe
navigate to your perl/bin directory and type perl.exe script.pl

you may also want to edit your environment variables so path includes the address to your perl installation executable file...
*hint* environment variables can be modified in System Properties' advanced tab =)


Re: Sgt Neo

I can't see how this relates to SharonM's problem... perhaps a new thread is a better solution?
