Have any one familiar with Perl Dev Kit?
I want to compile my game.pl script to executable.
So I can run this command "game" anywhere on command windows. Maybe
set some environment variable?
Currently, I have to run where game where it is located with such as
in the C drive otherwise I get this error.
'game' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable
program or batch file.
I can hack it and manually put it in C:\Windows then I can use game
anywhere I want.
Re: Perl Dev Kit
You have converted your perl script into a Windows .exe, so you now have
a file c:\game.exe?
Learn how to use your OS. You need to put it in a directory that is
named in the %PATH% environment variable; if you like, you can add a new
directory to %PATH% and put it there.
I believe you can also create a 'game.exe' key somewhere appropriate in
the registry with the full path, but I don't really know.
C:\Windows is typically in %PATH% already.
It will be seen that the Erwhonians are a meek and long-suffering people,
easily led by the nose, and quick to offer up common sense at the shrine of
logic, when a philosopher convinces them that their institutions are not based
on the strictest morality. [Samuel Butler, paraphrased] email@example.com

A slick user should IMNSHO know that working as Administrator is not a
smart thing to do.
You can set your PATH variable to the directory where game.exe is stored.
