( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
We package a version of perl with our commercial software product. (yes, yes boo on me for selling closed source; i don't like it either but one has to pay the bills.) Of course, there's no way to know in advance exactly where a client will install our software - as in what directory structure they will use. So I have to write scripts all the time that need to first find perl, and then run the main body of the code. Since I can depend on sh just about everywhere, for Unix I have a sh script which finds perl for me based on some ENV variables that our software always sets and the runs perl using the old  exec $PERL -x $0 $* trick, $PERL having been set by the sh portion of the code (I'll include full code below for the curious). What I need is a win32 batch script equivalent of this and I don't even know where to begin. Any win32 peeps out there think they can help? I hope this question is clear enough.... =]

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.
