( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

A couple of comments.

Firstly, I'd just like to point out that if the script has a syntax error, the window will still disappear. If this is a problem, it can be dealt with using the alternate method suggested by BrowserUk at Re: Small Problem with running Perl Scripts in Windows. His method has a side-effect of dropping to the command line when the script is done, instead of just prompting before closing the window.

Secondly, my preference is to be able to press any key, not just enter, to close the window. The following slight modification is what I installed on my system:

=head1 NAME =head1 SYNOPSIS perl -Mouse =head1 DESCRIPTION Install in your perl/lib or perl/site/lib directory in a file named "". Then enter the following commands: assoc .pl=Perl ftype Perl=perl -Mouse "%1" %* Then clicking on a *.pl file will cause the script to run in a new window but the window will (usually) not close when the script finishes. =head1 AUTHOR tye =cut END { eval " use Term::ReadKey; "; unless($@) { print "Press any key to close..."; ReadMode(3); ReadKey(); ReadMode(0); } else { print "Press ENTER to close: "; <STDIN>; } } 1;

But definitely, ++tye. :)

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.
