Subject: README.txt suggestion

Hi,

In the README it says:

    * In the command prompt window you can:

       1. run any perl script by launching

          c:\> perl c:\path\to\script.pl

    ...


*But I think it first needs to say*:

    * First reboot Windows to install the system 'path' to perl.

    * Then in any command prompt window (a DOS box) you can:

       1. run a perl script by launching

          c:\> perl c:\path\to\script.pl"
    ...


Without the reboot it comes back and says, "perl is not found."

Thanks for Perl!  I used it many years ago, and now find it back on my system.

Hi Howard, after installing strawberry perl via MSI the reboot is not necessary. When installing ZIP package you need to run c:\myperl\update_env.pl.bat but after that reboot is again not necessary (just open new command prompt window) -- kmx

Thank you.  I'll look at it at some point again.  (Unfortunately am bogged down in other development at the moment.)
