On Windows, the hook script should be a batch file and will need to
be named "post-commit.bat" (not "post-commit"). Or the hook script
can be an executable file named "post-commit.exe". I think there are
some other options as well, but perl is not one of those options. To
run a perl script as a hook script, you would need to write a batch
file (which Subversion will call) which calls the perl script.
