Pack statement works in UNIX environment but not Win98

The following statement works fine in the UNIX (HP_UX 10.20) environment:

$FrameSync = pack( 'H*', '1acffc1d' );

However, when I transport this script to Win98, I get the following error:

syntax error near unexpected token 'pack('

What might be my blunder?

How do you run your script? Please try "perl yourscript.pl" and see what happen.

Good grief! You're right. I have the script running under a bash shell and was assuming that the proper command to launch a program was "bash <scriptname>". It hadn't ocurred to me to use "perl" in the call.

..couldn't see the forest for the trees.

Thanks! :)
