--This is a way to create a shortcut that automatically runs perl and slic3r.
--This is the content of citrusterm.bat. Edit it in notepad or the non-windows equivalents.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

@echo off
call C:\dev\CitrusPerlforSlic3rPerl\bin\citrusvars.bat

Title CitrusPerl 5.14.2.1 x86 ( wxWidgets 2.9.3 )

cd C:\dev\CitrusPerlforSlic3rPerl

--(Here put the path to slic3r.pl), eg.

c:
cd slic3r
perl slic3r.pl

cmd /K

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--Then save the file.
--Double clicking on citrusterm.bat (or a desktop shortcut of this) will then run perl and slic3r.
--You can also make it run build.pl before running slic3r by putting "perl build.pl" between "cd slic3r" and "perl slic3r.pl".

Or, you can just use wperl.exe. It gets installed when you install Perl. Make the target field in your shortcut look something like the following, and you're done.

"C:\dev\CitrusPerl\x64\5-14\bin\wperl.exe C:\Users\kc\Documents\3D_Printer\Slic3r\slic3r.pl"
