Perlis.dll Problem

    I had read that the perlis.dll was significantly faster than the
    perl.exe, so I decided to try it on our IIS server. It does appear to
    be faster, but I'm having one major problem. Any code in the scripts
    that launches an external process fails. I've tested and confirmed
    this. I made a copy of my original script and renamed in with a plx
    extension. When I run the .pl version, everything works great. When I
    run the .plx version, everything works except the external call.

    Is this expected behavior or are there steps I must take to call an
    external program when using the dll?

    If you're using Activestate Perl and exec(), then yes, it is expected
    behaviour. See "Windows Quirks" in the ActivePerl FAQ.
