which perl is this?

as far as I can see I cannot just run 'perl' when the only thing I have 
installed is TeXLive, the tlperl is hidden inside and not really 
available for the outside.

cmd.exe does not respond to it.

I can get things executed using runscript though, so perhaps we are 
doing down too many subshells for ARs liking
