Running Perl script using WINAT

Posted on 1998-09-22

This is not a Perl Script question.
I was trying to run perl script using WINAT.exe and
WINAT didn't execute the script.  I don't have any problems
when I run the command from the DOS prompt (NT platform).
The entry in the WINAT (command Scheduler):
d:\perl\bin\perl build.plx proj.txt  
d:\perl\bin\perl.exe build.plx proj.txt

I even put the command in the batch file.  All the lines
were executed except d:\perl\bin\perl build.plx proj.txt.
Anybody can help?

Are you sure you should be using the .plx extension.  Some perl compilers for WinNT use .pl

Actually my problem has been resolved.
When I execute the script in the command line,
the PATH in the machine is used.
When I use the scheduler, I have to set the PATH
since the scheduler does not recognize the system path.
It is good to know some compilers use .pl.
Thank you.
