* Use Perl with COM techniques in administration and development Discover why Perl is the perfect language for Windows scripting and systems administration. Author Scott McMahan explains the Microsoft concept of Automation, and shows you how you can use Perl with COM techniques to realize it.

Save time and effort in administration and development. Getting the most out of Windows' multitasking and networking requires a different way of thinking. This book is a hands-on, project-oriented guide that demonstrates how to achieve Automation in MSWindows by controlling many Win32 system processes without immediate user interaction.

Implement solutions fast. Each chapter presents a case study in which the author has used the power of Perl to automate some part of Windows. Code for the programs, and a Perl interpreter, appear on the CD-ROM. Discussions range from pure Perl programs like a UNIX 'cron' clone to programs that use Automation to control other software including Microsoft Office applications. Additionally, you will learn to:

* Send mail the SMTP way

* Automate nightly backups

* Smoke test your application in Developer Studio

* Use Perl to Automate rebuilds

* Create C++ add-ins for Perl

* Use Perl as a CGI scripting language

So kick back! Perl, in Windows, is the ultimate Automation client because coding is as painless as Visual Basic, and Perl's strength as a scripting language for running jobs automatically is unparalleled.
