      C:\>perl -e 'print "Hello World\n"'
      will work fine, but On Windows OS, cmd shell does not treat single quote (')
      as a quote,
      so double quote (") should be used after '-e' on the command Line Interface
      like this:
      C:\>perl -e "print 'Hello World'"
      However, one can use 'qq' operator in perl to do a good job like this:
      C:\>perl -e "print qq{Hello World\n}"
