I do not think any of these have been answered in the FAQ's so here we go. How would one spawn a new instance of a command shell in Windows from a simple perl script? I know about fork() command but all this does is spawn a nested command prompt in the same window as the already running command prompt used by the parent process.

I want a parent process to launch a child process in it's own command shell window.

Second, has anyone ever used bgstipple successfully? What exactly does it do? Does anyone have an example of a use of bgstipple?

Third, How would I insert graphics into a tk widget? Like a button or textbox background or even a simple window frame? I thought bgstipple was the way but from reading about it it seems that it is for a sort of shading effect (bgstipple that is).

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
