prashanth_hsn has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hi all, I'm developing a simple application using Tcl and perl. I had installed perl and Tcl on my Machine(runs on Windows 2000) with active perl and Tcl installation packages. Now I was looking for most simplest way to install TCL and perl on a new machine so that my application can be used on it. To do so i simply copied the folders perl and Tcl from my systems Root and pasted it on the new machine. Then created file type association for .pl,.pm as perl.exe and wish85.exe for .tcl using assoc and ftype in dos prompt. And finally updated the environment variable using AUTOEXEC.BAT. When tried running my application it was not performing as expected. So when debugged it I found that the argumnets which i was sending from Tcl (.tcl file) to perl(.pl file) were not getting passed. I used the below looking like code to do so.
So my question is, Where did I go wrong. was it with the way I installed perl in new Machine or the Way i'm passing arguments to my perl file.
