in thread Open a second DOS window

Try this

#! perl -plw use strict; use Win32::Console; BEGIN{ my $c=new Win32::Console( STD_ERROR_HANDLE ); $c->Free(); $c->Alloc(); } END{ print 'Paused'; 1 while sleep 1; }

Name that as and then do

perl -e"open F, '| perl' or die $!; print F 'Hello world', $ +_, $/ for 1 .. 100"

You'll need to use ^Break to end the progam.
