Hi starface245,

The error message you provided leads me to believe you're on a Windows system. If that's not the case, this might not work, so feel free to disregard.

Putting the file name itself in double quotes might be the answer here.

$cmd = "perl script.pl < \"$file\""; (somewhat tested)

[ambrus]: Corion: schmorp points out https://metacpan. org/pod/release/ KARASIK/Prima-1. 49/pod/Prima/File. pod,
[ambrus]: so there's an IO waiter (Prima::File) and a timer (Prima::Timer) maybe it's possible to write an AnyEvent loop driver over it, a saner one than POE
