No, it's not silly - see the seemingly unrelated Re: Strange "There is not enough space on the disk" error (Win32) as well as perlwin32faq5:
STDIN and STDOUT, and Piping don't always work on NT/2000.

You may get unexpected results when you try to redirect the output of files that use Windows NT/2000's file association feature. You can use PerlApp or pl2bat to convert a Perl script to an executable or a batch file. This should solve any problems you may have with redirection.

Another alternative that works is to run the script as perl script.pl (which you did).

You can add XP to the list of OSes on the first line. I've searched, but I've never seen a complete explanation for this oddity.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
