Hopefully on-topic as about "(La)TeX related software and tools"
I just learned about the rmligs script. Since it isn't available through MiKTeX (and neither through TeX Live), I downloaded the archive manually and unpacked it. Using Windows command prompt, rmligs runs successfully when I'm in the directory where the file
rmligs (without a file extension) is, typing
perl rmligs testfile.tex.
Now I tried to make the script available globally, just like e.g. latexmk is, but didn't succeed. How do I make rmligs globally available, so that I can use it no matter in which directory I am?
I tried putting all the rmligs files in a directory in different places, seeking to follow the texmf tree order:
C:\Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX 2.9\scripts\rmligs\perl\
C:\Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX 2.9\scripts\rmligs\
C:\mtpak\is my local/personal/custom root, which works for other additions.)
After each of these attempts, I refreshed the file name database, but calling
perl rmligs foo.tex or
rmligs foo.tex didn't work.
I'm using ActivePerl 5.12.4 Build 1205 (64-bit) on Windows 7 (64-bit). I'm not an advanced command line user nor a Perl programmer or anything, I installed Perl in the first place to use latexmk.
