Perl.exe in Task manager services

When I look at the Windows NT Task Manager or issue a pslist command I see a nice list of processes named perl.exe and perl respectively. They have their associated PIDs listed along with other information. This all makes sense because the system is running perl.exe and not monktim.pl. I can tell which Perl processes are which (or at least which ones are mine) because I log the PID. It would be nice if I could view the Task Manager or pslist and just see my scripts by name (or some other identifying information) instead of looking at the log for the PID and then looking for the PID in the Task Manager. Can this be done without a major hack?
My server is Windows 2003 Runs on Itanium

I'd checkout the process explorer, it gives out more info than the task manager does.
