Perl scripts for Windows

Please feel free to look, download, use...and comment. Did something work or not work for you? Is there some other functionality that you'd like to see? "

    Nice scripts, but...

    Scripts sit uneasily between modules and applications. A script is very rarely something that is very useful unmodified - and if it is to be used as the basis for a new work, then it would be better to start with a package or module that was designed with re-use in mind.

    That's not to say scripts shouldn't be made publicly available. The ideal would be, perhaps for Roth Consulting to amalgamate all their scripts into Win32::Utilities or something, but that obviously takes time and eff

    I think 90% of people with a need for this stuff either want it filled by an application that requires no modification.

    But it does appear that what is entirely lacking is a showcase for Perl applications. I seem to recall a discussion somewhere else about have a 'Camel-meat' site where people could post announcements of their applications - unfortunately I cant remember where that discussion was - the advocacy mailing list perhaps ?

    I'm glad you liked the scripts.

    I subscribe to the Perl-NTAdmins listserver, and serveral subscribers have found the scripts to be useful. In fact, some of the scripts were spawned from stated needs and desires.

    Ture, ture. I'd love to see more Perl apps, as well as modules. An excellent example of what I'm thinking about [WARNING: Blither mode ahead!] is the Rezrov module, which allows you to play Infocom games, like Zork. Not only is all the code Perl-only (so you don't have to beat on a compliler, making it HIGHLY portable), but he has modules for just about every interface you can think of, from bland ASCII text to Tk.
    Best of all, you can call it w/o writing your own program to build an interface! So it's an a

  • I agree...I'd like to see more modules for Win32. I use Win32::Lanman, and Dave Roth's modules all the time. Right now, I'm trying to write a raw IP generator script (which I plan to grow into a module) that uses eEye Security's new LibnetNT.dll. Unfortun- ately, I'm not a very experienced C or Windows coder...so I'm having some problems. It also doesn't help that I've already run into one area that was poorly undocumented. Anyway, that's where I'm trying to go...it's a little discouraging so far, but n
