working perfectly. BUT: it isn't integrated as cleanly as Activestate was
on my old XP system. Two problems:
1) if I just do "perlprogram.pl arg1 arg2 ..." it correctly runs
perlprogram.pl using strawberry, BUT: it doesn't pass any args in. If I do
"perl perlprogram.pl arg1 arg2..."
it all works fine.
2) A really minor problem [but one that I'm curious about]: with
activestate you could run a perl program *without* the extension. Just as
you can run BATCH.bat by just typing "BATCH" and APP.exe just by typing APP
you could run PERLPGM.pl just by typing PERL. Not a big thing but I was
wondering how Activestate managed it.
