Perhaps I'm going about this wrong.
I've installed XAMPP v1.6.3a. I've installed the Perl add-on v5.8.8-2.2.4. I manually added "D:\xampp\perl\bin" to the path.
I open a command prompt and go to "D:\xampp\perl\lib\Tk\demos\widget_lib".
When I type "hello.pl" Windows 2000 opens a box and asks for the program to open this file with.
http://127.0.0.1/xampp/index.php Status shows Perl with mod_perl "Activated".
Shouldn't I be seeing "Hello world" displayed on the command prompt screen?
