On Win32, "both" (that is, IndigoPerl and ActiveState Perl) Perl distributions install themselves in the path during the setup, and both come with the perl2bat.bat batch file, that (tries to) convert(s) any Perl program to a batch file.

The bootstrap code looks like this :

@rem = '--*-Perl-*-- @echo off if "%OS%" == "Windows_NT" goto WinNT perl -x -S "%0" %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9 goto endofperl :WinNT perl -x -S "%0" %* if NOT "%COMSPEC%" == "%SystemRoot%\system32\cmd.exe" goto endofperl if %errorlevel% == 9009 echo You do not have Perl in your PATH. goto endofperl @rem '; #!perl #line 14 eval 'exec perl -x -S "$0" ${1+"$@"}' if 0; # In case running under some shell require 5; ... Perl program begins ...

You could either simply use this, as any installed Perl is supposedly also in the path, or you could start from there with something crude like :

set DRIVES=c d e f g h echo Scanning for perl.exe for %%d in %DRIVES% dir %%d:\ /s /b perl.exe |find /i "Perl.exe"
and then let the user choose the version of Perl she wants to use. Note that people (or at least I) can have multiple versions of Perl installed, but most versions of Perl should be at least Perl 5 - so if your install script is self-reliant, you should be in the green.
perl -MHTTP::Daemon -MHTTP::Response -MLWP::Simple -e ' ; # The $d = new HTTP::Daemon and fork and getprint $d->url and exit;#spider ($c = $d->accept())->get_request(); $c->send_response( new #in the HTTP::Response(200,$_,$_,qq(Just another Perl hacker\n))); ' # web

  • 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.
