In my Win32 Perl build, a file guiperl.exe is installed. I can find no
information about what it is, or how I should use it.
On the expectation that it might be a copy of perl.exe compiled to run
GUI subsystem (ie, without a console), I tried running it. I get a
box, telling me
abnormal program termination
Presumably, something is wrong, but as I can't find where the executable
generated from (there's no mention of guiperl.exe in the Win32
unsure how to attempt a fix...
On the other hand, copying perl.exe to perlw.exe and then doing
editbin /subsystem:windows perlw.exe
does seem to give a perfectly good non-console Perl, so maybe
not what I thiunk it is...
