excellent! both work- thanks. The former needs me to precede with perl even
though I have perl.exe associated with .pl [sigh]
I guess using mhonarc.pl directly works only under NT. I never
bothered to check under Win9x.
I added the -stdout and -stderr options to deal with inferior shell
environments. Plus, -stderr can be used for rudimentary error logging.
I'd need ...
perl mhonarc.pl -scan -outdir 919mail >scan.txt
neverthe less Im happy I get the output file
Invoking perl directly is known to work, but is inconvienent, and can
be awkward. I haven't checked to see if using something like a Cygwin
bash shell will handle I/O redirection when invoking dos batch files.
