Yes, that should work, but --- Beware! Thar' be monsters there!!!

Keeping a separate directory (or dir tree) for scripts has many merits... (including giving you a place for smallish data files that you don't want commingled with the distro) and with the path to the executable established (see my earlier but now following response), one can run the scripts from their own directory ... or from the C:\ prompt using a fully qualified path to the script, for example:

C:\>dir d:\_Perl_\PMonks\11*.pl Directory of d:\_Perl_\PMonks ...10/09/2014 08:44 AM 504 10/15/2014 06:23 PM 789 ... C:\>D:\_Perl_\PMonks\ foo using shift and the CLI argument, 'foo' shift method: foo Enter one arg for shift method: bar (at_foo and @_ method) argument is: bar C:\>

Yes, this is an ActiveState install, but it still applies to OP's problem and the parent node's suggestion

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.
