Installation Under MS-DOS

  • You must have Perl 5.x on your system.
  • Download
  • Make a directory for the contents of this distribution:
    mkdir C:\htmlpp
  • Unzip the downloaded archive and copy the unzipped files to the new directory:
    copy *.* C:\htmlpp
  • Check htmlpp.bat - it assumes that the files are installed in C:\SPECIAL, which is how my system is set-up.
  • Change your autoexec.bat to define a variable PERLLIB if it is not defined yet. On my system, this is defined like this: set perllib=c:special;c:gnutools. Reboot or create a new DOS window.
  • Run the htmlpp command without arguments. You should get a message like this:
    Htmlpp - a HTML pre-processor V4.2a
