    I have need of creating many windows 7 shortcuts to a pile of video files.

    This is the first of what will likely be many occasions
    I don't know any of the windows based scripting languages but do program in perl somewhat. So my first hope is someone may have a perl script that can create windows shortcuts.

    Barring that, if someone can explain the mechanism to me, I can write the perl.

    But all I know of windows shortcuts is how to create them on context menu, not the mechanism that really tells windows to create one.

    If it means I have to learn enough windows programming to do it, then maybe someone can get me started?
