hi, i am trying to run the perl script from vb script in windows environment.The following are the sample files that i created to check its working.The problem is when i am running the .vbs file, command prompt window is flashing and getting close with in a second. what could be the reason for that and where can i be able to find the output of perl script ??? is the following procedure correct ??? how can i pass arguments to the perl script using batch file ???


====> .vbs file


option explicit

dim oShell

Set oShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")

oShell.CurrentDirectory = "c:\"

oShell.Run ("c:\batchfile.cmd")

SET oShell=nothing


====> .cmd file


C:\Perl\bin\perl.exe "c:\Perl\bin\myperl.pl"


====> .pl file



$in= "xxxxxx";

print $in ;


thank you
