How to run perl script in visually hidden manner on Win XP

Discussion in 'Perl Misc' started by Robert Rozman, Sep 7, 2004.

  1. Hi,

    I have some bluetooth control program that will let me execute perl scipts
    (with statement : perl mhsend.pl args).

    I don't exactly know how does this program executes, but there is big
    command prompt comming in focus over other applications and I'd like to
    avoid that.

    Are there any tricks to hide this command prompt or run these scripts
    visually hidden manner on winxp ?

    Thanks in advance,

    Robert.

    Are you using the ActiveState distribution of Perl? If so, use the
    program wperl.exe, rather than perl.exe. wperl will not generate a
    command-line window.
