Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Fellow Monks:

Using Perl I need to automate the scheduling/running of an executable to place it into Windows Scheduler.
Is there a module that will accomplish this task with relative ease?

    Windows is not exactly renowned for its command line tools ;-) but AT is actually not too bad. It is a good one to know about even if it is not Perl.

    C:\>at /? The AT command schedules commands and programs to run on a computer at a specified time and date. The Schedule service must be running to use the AT command. AT [\\computername] [ [id] [/DELETE] | /DELETE [/YES]] AT [\\computername] time [/INTERACTIVE] [ /EVERY:date[,...] | /NEXT:date[,...]] "command"
