        Q: Are there any tricks to installing Perl in win32?
        A: well, there are a few things to watch out for:
- extract the .zip to any temp directory, it will expand everything
including a bunch of patches and stuff you don't need and can delete
later.
- when you install, specifiy the directory as c:\usr\local so that you
can use the standard UNIX #!/usr/bin/perl header in your programs to
find perl. The install.bat file will create dirs and install things in
the right place...
- The directory where perl.exe is installed has to be in your path
statement in your autoexec.bat The install script talks about being able
to set your path via an environment tab in your ControlPanels->System,
but this does not exist on some windows95. You can edit your
autoexec.bat with the sysedit tool, and insert a line giving the path to
the perl.exe file like:
path %path%;.;C:\usr\bin;
- You have to manually associate *.pl files to execute Perl. Under
"windows explorer" select VIEW and then OPTIONS and add a file type .pl
to exec c:\usr\bin\perl.exe when double-clicked. this is a great way to
avoid the ugly DOS window completely. It does present a few other issues
though; the system doesn't know what to open a *.pl file with to edit,
and the STDOUT still goes to a DOS window which just blinks and is
gone.... Here is how to fix these:
        - create a shortcut to notepad.exe or the editor of your choice in the
c:\windows\SendTo folder. This will allow you to select a perl source
file from an explorer window, and open with the editor. You may also
want to create a shortcut to wordpad.exe or some other editor that does
simple search/replace or spell checking.
        - you won't be able to see STDOUT in a DOS window, but if you open a
filehandle for a log or message to the user, especially during testing,
you can open the file and display by using a line like this:
        system ('c:\\windows\\notepad.exe output.txt');
- don't forget to go back and delete the temporary source installation
directory.

        Q: what version of perl do I need to run on win95, and where do I get
it?
        A: At the time this was written v5.004_04 was the latest version
available. you can check out http://www.perl.com/latest.html for more
current information. You will find it easiest to unzip the download that
ends in *.zip if you already have winzip, or some other zip utility. The
GS version is at
http://www.perl.com/CPAN-local/ports/win32/Standard/x86/

Just for your information. Your sig textgraphics is almost unreadable, and I
only found out what it means when looking at your address on the right hand
side. So you might want to leave the graphics away, as it is probably easier on
the eye for about 85% of the email reading population.

Cheers :)
