    Not true. Not only does Rex(Wrecks)' solution work, but if you add (for example) '.PL' to the PATHEXT environmental variable in Win2k (and, I assume, XP) then you can just type 'script' without the '.pl', and it will execute it.

    (Of course I still (mentally) associate the '.pl' extension with the old Perl libraries; my executable Perl scripts end in '.plx'.)

    Update: For Win9x machines, pl2bat (as suggested by jmcnamara) is a much better solution.

      Ahh yes, I forgot to mention PATHEXT, good addition.

      I don't use it because I have tab-completion enabled in my Win2K/XP machines and I don't use Win9X anymore. Thanks for the catch :)
