Reinstalling 5.16/64-bit

I am among the folks who have seriously broken/missing documentation. My *perl* [and all the packages I've used so far, which isn't all that many of 'em] runs perfectly. But the documentation is decimated [as with everyone else, even the core-components section is missing]. The only "solution" I've seen is a vague-feeling comment that something must have gone wrong with the installation [even though *some* docs are installed, and the actual program is installed], and the fix is to reinstall. such is life...

Java Support

All,

What is the current practice for calling Java code from ActivePerl in specific, and Perl in general?

I've have found examples using Java (good, but old) and Inline::Java (not really appropriate for calling third-party code).

backticks and system() no longer work

I'm using perl v5.12.4 on a Win7 system

Backticks have stopped working. EG:

$cmd=`dir`; now returns a null string.

$cmd=`file.htm`; used to start the default browser on the named file. It no longer does anything.

System("dir"); similarly no longer works.

The commands work fine if entered on the command line or a batch file without perl.

Can anyone suggest a possible reason for this?

Is there some particular file responsible for handling backticks and system() which I might try to replace?

How to make portable the Wrap/InputPrefix line of tpj files

I would like to have portable tpj files. Portable means between different computers with different installation paths for the TDK. The tclapp -gui always inserts absolut path names for the prefix. Google shows me something like
...
Wrap/InputPrefix {@installdir@/bin/base-expect-@arch@@exeext@}
...
However, this does not work for me. From the log I would say that tclapp does not resolve the placeholders. Is there any way to use placeholders in tpj files?

Win7 won't pass command line arguments to @ARGV

I installed AS perl on my new Win7 machine, but it won't pass command line arguments to @ARGV.

I suspect it's a registry problem in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, but my changes haven't fixed it.

Does anyone know the line to change, and what to put there?
