Softlinking perl in xp

Postby whazooo » 07. October 2007 00:59

Hello all,
First, I love xampp.. Its great!

I have a lot of perl scripts that I want to work on with xampp
however I don't want to have to rewrite all of my script headers.

The scripts are formated as such:
Sheebang /usr/bin/perl

And I would have to change all the scripts to:
sheebang "I:\Program Files\xampp\perl\bin\perl.exe"

I know that softlinking in xp is possible,
But I cant find much info on the web.

I would like to link any reference to /usr/bin/perl in a script to
"I:\Program Files\xampp\perl\bin\perl.exe"

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Whazooo

Thanks for the reply,
I had tried this approach previously without success..
I'm going to read up on XP's Junction functions,
If I have any luck I'll write about it here...

Thanks again!
