Re: Unable to execute perl hooks

No i am calling the perl hook from a pre-commit.bat like this
perl D:\apps\check.pl %1 %2
if errorlevel 1 goto :ERROR
exit 0
:ERROR
echo Error found in commit 1>&2
exit 1

I am trying to test the hooks script from the command line like this
check.pl D:\SVN\CNR_Repository -- 54
it will print the author
rmills

but not the log message
