    Thanks (also to Martin for his similar idea). I will look into
    that server.

    I've installed ActivePerl, which gives me a way to run .pl
    files, i.e. :
        c:\> perl someprogram.pl

    Does the php installation give me a command-line
    interpreter like that?

    Here's why I'm asking. I have a set of pages that I want
    to convert to php, but I will also need to drop those pages
    onto a CD too.  I supposed I could view each page from
    the server and 'save as HTML' locally, but I was thinking
    that I might be able to run a php interpreter on the *.php
    pages and generate corresponding *.html pages in batch
    mode as follows:
        c:\> php index.php > index.html
        c:\> php about.php > about.html

    and then run a batch search/replace program on the
    *.html files to change all links to .php pages to link
    to the newly-generated pages.

    Is there anything like that or does the install package just
    configure a web server?
