This is a very common path to "Perl", #!/usr/local/bin/perl. If you are on a NT host would this still be correct?

No. Windows NT does not have the same directory structure as a Unixish box. In general, if I recall correctly, you don't need the path line in Perl programs for windows.

Should it be deleted, as it is the very first line of the script?

I believe if it's there, Perl on Windows simply ignores it. Easy enough to fix, if not. :)

You generally don't need a "Path to Perl" on NT since the path to perl is included in the PATH variables at the system level. However, I do code the full path anyway as a reference. (E:\perl\bin\perl.exe)

always best to use #!perl
no need for a path at all. i think you need to keep this line in just to tell the server it's a perl script, but wouldnt stake my life on it. i do a lot of perl coding on windows and always keep this line in like this and all works fine.
