I am using Perl only, and I am trying to code-in the lines that would change the homapage url for Internet Explorer after running this Perl program.
*I am using the header 'use Win32::OLE' which calls on a system file.
*This code is error-free.
print "What url would you like to make as Internet Explorer's home page?\n";
print "(no spaces, the url as you normally see it on the address bar)\n";
print "You did not make and entry! Please enter a url.\n";
if ($url =~ /\s/)
print "That's not a url! You entered a space somewhere. Re-enter:\n";
*CODE FOR SETTING HOMEPAGE IN INTERNET EXPLORER HERE*
print "\nYour home page in IE has been changed! Re-open IE and see!";
You could use Win32::TieRegistry (https://metacpan.org/module/ADAMK/Win32-TieRegistry-0.26/lib/Win32/TieRegistry.pm) to edit the registry to set:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main] "Start Page"="http://www.example.com/"
