Hi I am trying to learn perl on my windows machine at the moment. Later on I will be converting to a linux machine and will be running some specific stuff on there.
Going Crazy - Beginner - Win - Padre - Strawberry
My problem is that my padre install has stopped working and I cannot get it to work anymore no matter what. It was working previously. I wrote 5 or 6 programs along with my Learning Perl book and they executed. I have since tried reinstalling padre, strawberry perl, etc. everything I can imagine.
In padre, When I write a program and click run it asks me to save then it does -nothing-. When I ask it to 'go to command window' it crashes.
Somehow padre is not linked to my perl install. HOW DO I RUN A FILE USING PERL? OMG!
Even if you could just tell me how to run a file from the windows or perl command line that would be fine. Please dont assume that I know anything when explaining this as I find it is the little details that are often creating my problems.
