That's causing your problem. You are only using the chunk before the first space for each file.

I haven't had a chance to test this in your exact usage situation, but try the following. It replaces spaces in the file names with escaped spaces.

#!/usr/bin/perl @files = glob("*.msg"); foreach $file(@files) { $file =~ s/ /\\\ /g; $cmd = "perl script.pl < $file"; system($cmd); }
