first of all I have no clue about Perl scripts, ActivePerl or programming languages whatsoever. I’ve been successfully running a certain tool via a perlscript in the past but that was Windows 7 times and I never got it to work again.
I recently downloaded ActiveState 5.36 and typed state auth and state checkout ActiveState-Projects/ActiveState-Perl-5.36.0 . in cmd.exe.
Thus, I believe ActivePerl has been successfully installed on my PC which is crucial for my tool to work.
Now this tool I have contains:
some other files (currently unnecessary).
the batch file, perl.bat, which used to work in the past contains the following line of code:
vwftool.pl def.txt list.txt vwf_data1.asm
Just clicking on the batch file used to execute the perl file through ActivePerl and it created a .asm file.
This doesn’t work anymore, nothing happens except cmd.exe is opened and states:
Usage:definition.txt list.txt output.txt
Press any key to continue…
As I said it used to work, now does not anymore on my new PC. Any clues? Calling a perl file through a batch file seems like a pretty basic thing to me
