perl output is not visible

Nov 19, 2014
When I run a perl script in the editor I am not seeing the output. When I run cmd inside the same shell the output from the perl script appears fine.


<output appears here>

My co-worker who is also using Take Command is not seeing this.
Does anyone have any ideas what this might be?

I'n unclear what "IE" has to do with this?

Do you have the internal TCC Perl scripting support enabled? (OPTION / Startup / Scripting.) If so, you must be using PerlScript (because there are waaaaay too many bugs in the embedded Perl for Windows). If you're not using PerlScript, then disable that option.
