Next: Can I write useful perl programs on the command line?
OS/2 just use
extproc perl -S -your_switches
as the first line in
*.cmd file (-S due to a bug in cmd.exe's `extproc' handling). For
DOS one should first invent a corresponding batch
file, and codify it in
ALTERNATIVE_SHEBANG (see the
INSTALL file in the source distribution for more information).
The Win95/NT installation, when using the Activeware port of Perl, will
modify the Registry to associate the .pl extension with the perl
interpreter. If you install another port, or (eventually) build your own
Win95/NT Perl using WinGCC, then you'll have to modify the Registry
Macintosh perl scripts will have the the appropriate Creator and Type, so
that double-clicking them will invoke the perl application.
IMPORTANT!: Whatever you do,
PLEASE don't get frustrated, and just throw the perl interpreter into your cgi-bin directory, in order to get your scripts working for a web server. This is an
EXTREMELY big security risk. Take the time to figure out how to do it correctly.
