in reply to OT: how to run the script perl/tk program in windows system

If I've understood correctly there are two questions here.

The first is that you have a program that resides on a Unix machine and you would like to run it from a Windows workstation.

I'd recommend to use a software like VMWare. The only caveat is that if I'm not mistaken VMWare is a commercial (paid) software. A free one is VNC, but I don't know if you can run a server on a system and a client on another (probably not).

The second is about "mounting" a Unix filesystem on a Windows machine. I really encourage you to follow Grygonos's advice. Samba is a really great software and once is installed it runs smoothly.

Hope it helps.

Best regards,

    VNC and VMWare are two different things. VMWare emulates an i386 type system, enabling you to 'install' a Windows inside a linux box, or vice versa. VNC is just a means of remote connection to an existing, running machine. (And thus is most useful as client on one machine, server on another.)

    Caveat: They may have added functionality since I last looked, but if that includes emulation, I'd be surprised.

    C.

      True, castaway. I've made a little mess in my reply. I intended to recommend VMWare so he could install a windows inside his linux box and run it from there.

      Thanks for pointing it out :)

      Regards,
