in thread .bat and perl mystery

Sorry, I'm not sure I quit understand. Should I create a child process solely for the execution of the .bat file and the use the parent process to continue running the main script?

    Make the changes in the script, before you start the build. These changes will be visible in any child process.
    sub Build { # my $vcvars32 = 'VCVARS32.BAT'; << comment out these # system ($vcvars32); << two lines # set your environment variables (the same ones # vcvars32.bat sets) like so: $ENV{LIB} = 'D:\MSVCDIR\LIB;'.$ENV{LIB}; $ENV{PATH} = 'D:\MSVCDIR\BIN;'.$ENV{PATH]; system $command; # this now sees the variables set above

    check perlvar for a little more info on %ENV
