Well, DOS doesn't allow you to use Perl "one-liners" which are one line programs, so I can't think of a good example for you to do. Also, I just found out the hard way, that Windows 7 dropped the program "EDIT" Yeah, why would Windows users need a text editor to use in DOS anyways, right? Fucking Microsoft, what a bunch of idiots.
You will have to open notepad.
in notepad, type out:
print "Hello World!\n";
And hit "File" + "Save As" and then save it on your Desktop as "perl.txt"
Now, hit the WINDOWS button and the R button on your keyboard at the same time. This should open the Run dialog box, for any version of Windows. type out "CMD" then a command prompt will start. in that DOS window, type:
And viola! You have written your first Perl program that ran the print() function!
If you were running Linux, all you would have to do is open Terminal and type:
perl -e 'print "Hello World!\n";'
to get the same result. Hehe, but Windows is much easier to use than Linux, right?
