      Asunto: [PBML] Command Line Statement Issue



       
      Hi,

      I downloaded Perl64. Typed in: perl -v and confirmed I am using v5.16.3 for MSWin32-x64-multi-thread.

      I can run a file, but I am having trouble with command lines... such as

      C:\Perl64>print "Hello"; #returns the following:

      Unable to initialize device PRN

      C:\Perl64>print -e "Hello"; #returns the following:

      Unable to initialize device PRN

      C:\Perl64>print -c "Hello"; #returns the following:

      Unable to initialize device PRN

      What is the first step to run command line statements? Thanx!

        That won't work in the Windows CMD.EXE shell -
        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Command_Prompt . There you can try:

        perl -e "print q/Hello\n/;"
