in reply to exe for perl

As long as your extensions (.pl) are set to open with the perl executable, you can run a .pl file by clicking on it or a shortcut to it. If this is not set correctly, you can right click on a .pl file, select "Open With", then "Choose Program" to find the Perl executable.

    and if you append .pl to the PATHEXT environment variable then you don't need to type the .pl extension.
