Summary

Summary

Perl is the perfect language for achieving automation in Windows because it combines a painless Visual Basic style of coding with Perl's strength as a scripting language for process communications. However, the new multitasking and networking approaches with 32-bit Windows require a radical departure from previous programming techniques. This book, dedicated to the use of Perl as a language to automate 32-bit Windows, shows how to control many Win32 systems processes without immediate user interaction.

The author explains how to use Peri scripts to automate tasks such as processing complex documents and customizing interactions by making a program look different to different users. Also provided are Peri scripts that will permit network administrators to automate tedious Windows maintenance tasks that range from automating to running a Windows system remotely from the Web.
