On some Perl newsgroup or mailing list, I observed about wperl.exe
On my sys, it is in same folder as perl.exe
The newsgroup post say to use wperl.exe if don't want the dos or command console window popping up.
I not yet tried it myself. As all my clips use path to perl.exe I would need to momentarily hard code the path to wperl.exe in one of my clips to try it.
And the wperl.exe may possibly not be intended to be used in conjunction with NoteTab's ^!runperl command (when doing alteration or work on a current document) I don't see a need in this case anyway since I never get a pop up dos or command console window when using ^!runperl and working on current document.
I write and post this now before I forget. As I currently very busy and put this wperl.exe trial on my todo list.
If anyone has experience with the wperl.exe or trys it out, please post about it on this list. Thanks.

Thanks for pointing me to wperl.exe. It is the right executable
to stop the black window popping up. :) At last!
