That's correct. The name of the batch file should be "post-commit.bat" on

Just clarifying that I didn't mean to say perl is an option to be called
directly as a hook. When you are calling commit-email.pl from a batch file,
perl will still need to be installed (if not already installed) on that
machine since Windows don't come with perl by default.
