Append a string to a file in Perl in one-line fashion

Want to append a string to a file in Perl one-line fashion. DOS Shell, we can do
echo This is a test >> test.txt
In Perl, can it be achived? I know that open a file with option ">>..." in Perl. Appending can be done. How about commad-line fashion?

Thanks for the info. I tried it and found the following:
E:\oracle\perl\5.8.3\bin\MSWin32-x86-multi-thread>perl -e 'print "The new line\n" ' >> file.txt
Can't find string terminator "'" anywhere before EOF at -e line 1.

E:\ora10g\perl\5.8.3\bin\MSWin32-x86-multi-thread>perl -version
This is perl, v5.8.3 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread
