I've contemplated the idea of a command-line shell that used ActiveX scripting for it's "procs". I'd love to use Perl for that, but they can be mixed with basic, etc.
I have written Inline::WSH which allows you to use VBScript and JScript in your perl programs. It's a bit rough around the edges so I'm not going to publish it until it's a bit more robust. But then, I've also wondered whether anyone would be interested in such a beast! I wrote it mainly to have a play around with the Inline module. It's very nice, thanks Brian!
Windows script Components offers a way to make a COM object in Perl.
Absolutely! Its nice, flexible, cheaper and easier than PerlCtrl :) doesn't need compiling, etc. But it's not as portable. I do like Windows Script Components.
So I think Perlscript is wonderful. I'd be inclined to diable it for HTML pages, but have it around for files that are obviously meant to be programs.
I agree with you. PerlScript is nice, just not in a web browser. I might be wrong, but if you disable PerlScript by setting that registry key, I think it only disables it in IE. As I said, I might be wrong - I haven't tested it.
