      On Win32 it works better in the cmd.exe shell:
      Can't find string terminator "'" anywhere before EOF at -e line 1.
      But it's only on linux that you get to fully appreciate the genius contained within:
      Modification of a read-only value attempted at -e line 3.
      I am using active Perl and crimson editor. I cannot get it to run it says "cannot find string terminator "'" anywhere before EOF at -e line 1" I cannot find a way to copy and paste this on msdos so I manually copied it...I checked and I think I copied it correctly

        For pasting text into a Command Window under Windows, I enable in Properties/Options the checkboxes for Quick Edit. Pasting works then by using the left (i.e. secondary) mouse button.

        If you don't want to enable Quick Edit, you can always post into a command window by clicking on the icon in the top left corner of the window, then Edit/Insert.

        HTH. I'm not sure whether I named the menu entries in the write way. I'm using a German version of Windows, so I had to do some guessing on the English menu names.
