How do I call Perl scripting file inside Win32 executable

How do I call Perl scripting file inside Win32 executable

How do I call Perl scripting file inside Win32 executable

I use Microsoft VC++6.0 to create one program.  This program uses UDP protocol to send the data to the LAN.

The data is reading from text data file.  The format likes (the real format has much more data field on each line):
05 01 03 89
05 01 04 89
05 01 05 89
The third number will increase by one on each line down.  I can use Perl's for loop to generate this data scripting file.  The reason I use Perl instead of other program language is that this scripting file have to let non-programmer to understand the data value to be used in the data file.  At same time, I don't need to write so many boring line's above memtioned manually.

How do I call Perl's scripting data file inside my Win32 program?  

RE: How do I call Perl scripting file inside Win32 executable

uh, going out on a limb to say that the 'system' function in C++ will execute a string on the command line, so calling it with ("perl script.pl") as the argument should work.  ask in the C++ forum to double check on this and how to use it properly.
