Default executing STDIN on a WinXP Pro machine

I am wondering if there is a possibility of executing this code below on a WinXP Pro machine. Is it the STDIN line that is crashing the code?

It's just a small snippet that I have been looking at, trying to learn Perl asap......

Code:
#! C:/Perl/bin/perl.exe

do { 
  print "Enter your name";
  $name = <STDIN>; 
  chop $name; 
} until ($name); # Redo until something entered.

Works fine on 5.8 on linux. Can you tell us how the crash manifests itself - is there an error message or whatnot?
