in reply to wperl.exe vs perl.exe

The wperl.exe command under Windows starts Perl without attaching it to a console. This means that if you associate for example the file extension .wpl with wperl.exe, double-clicking test.wpl will not pop up a console window with text scrolling by. This is very convenient if your Perl script is written using Win32::GUI or some other windowing toolkit.

Using wperl.exe and thus not having a console attached also has a drawback - STDIN,STDOUT and STDERR are not available, so you will need to reopen them to some log files if you output any text via print or warn.

    will wperl.exe run continuesly unless it is terminated by opening Task Manager and terminating wperl.exe process? If not how do I do it?

      wperl.exe will exit when your script exits. Simple as that. If your script never exits of itself, and has no method in it for you to terminate it, then you will have to terminate it through the task manager.
