Newbie question here. Bought the book "Learning Perl on Win32 Systems" ,
and d/l'ed ActiveState Perl and ran install. Updated path. Perl works.
How is the Windows 2000 system supposed to be configured to use the Win32 Extension ??
with following script ( pg 118).
$longname = 'words.secret';
$shortname = Win32::GetShortPathName($longname);
print ("shortname is: ", $shortname);
problem is the $shortname is always undefined.
1. what module, extension, file do I need for Win32 extensions?
2. what directory is the module, extension, file that I need supposed to
3. is there futher system configuration I need to make, or define a system
