in reply to redirecting stdin on windows

Like, I don't know anything about Perl, Win32 and IPC, but if it were Unix, I would use some Expect stuff to handle this. The open FIFO, "/path/to/program|"; might actually work, at least on my Unix boxes.

But as I said, I really haven't been dealing with Win32 much. However, according to CPAN the Expect module should be working with cygwin perl.

And you do know about the security implications of storing a cleartext password in a script, dontcha?

    I know, I won't be storing the password in the perl script. I already have a perl/Tk GUI that takes the username and password, and is supposed to call this command line utility that stores the password in the windows registry.
