How to run external win32 process in Perl/Tkby Anonymous Monk
|on Sep 27, 2002 at 00:07 UTC
Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have an external Win32 process which I run to delete quite a number of files that are generated during extracting and the sorting process. I can have the "destroy.pl" in my main code but it makes my code long and hard to read. My problem is when I generate a stand-alone executable using PerlApp, I cannot run it on a machine which does not have perl installed. Not even on a machine where perl is not installed on c: directory.
I tried to create destroy.exe and have it in the same folder as the main program, but that did not work either. Because I don't know how to tell the main program where to find the destroy.exe. Any suggestions.
