I have been trying to load DOS Perl 4.0 and I am getting
"Cannot execute c:\PERL.EXE".   I have another file called perlglob.exe.
which I don't know what to do with.  Can somehelp please?

Thanks,

If you are talking about bperl, you need to do the following:
- put perl, perlglob, and dos4g into a directory in your PATH
- put the lib stuff in a subdir, and set perllib to that directory
- (optionally) set dos4g=quit

Then it should run (on a 386 or above) I don't know the minimum memory
requirements - I've always run it on machines with at least 4MB of XMS
free (i.e, 8MB pcs :)

Note that readme.dos in the bperl distribution has installation notes
in it.
