5939Re: [Clip] Highlighting text for programs
- Mar 1, 2001Wheeler and Piotr
I tried a while back to get perl to work (launch) from NT but I gave up.
Yes, I can run the line numbering perl program in the samples library, but I
have never been able to get any of MY perl programs to run. (To run perl, I
FTP them to my ISP and invoke them from HTML pages.) Most of the perl
scripts process input from the HTML Form function. Some to table look-ups
and some do math. Most scripts build new HTML pages and present their
output on the new pages. The perl interpreter on my local PC is ActivePerl
from ActiveState Tool Corp.
I got really discouraged about using NT to develop perl scripts when someone
on this board told me I'd need a copy of Apache running on my computer to
run perl scripts.
I'm probably making some simple systematic error. Would either or both of
you post a few simple examples of perl scripts and post with them the
instructions to launch them from NT, please?
Thanks for your help,
