A Java "\n"? (really - it's a "Perl script" - that upper case is like
fingernails on the blackboard). But not sure what this means. "\n" is a
valid Perl metachar for new line - you can use it in a print stmt or a
> Can you not use a Java script within a Perl script?
Er, it would depend. "Java", generally, isn't considered a scripting sort
browser based language used on many web sites. Perl can write web pages
and print out the JS text that the browser will later run. Need to include
<script> tags etc.
>Can you launch a web page directly from a Perl script command, or do you
do it from the Java script
Er, "launch a web page" doesn't make sense. Web pages are displayed via
web servers. Perl can create web pages (even dynamically, as with cgi
scripts) that the web server (Apache or IIS, say) will send back to the
browser to be rendered as a web page. There are modules (LWP for one)
that will let you fetch web pages (via a URL) as if your script was a
browser but I don't think that's what you meant either.
