You can always put a line

% !TEX TS-program = pdflatex

at the top of your source file.  But Perl's comment character is #
instead of %, hence you can't use this feature with Perl.  But I
wouldn't use TeXworks in order to write Perl scripts anyway because
TeXworks doesn't support Perl syntax.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
