Re: Storing system grep's output to an array in perl

in reply to Storing system grep's output to an array in perl

system() executes the command specified but it doesn't capture the output of the command.

system() will return the exit status of the command as returned by the 'wait' call.

Update:

Use backtick(``) to capture the specified command's output.

my @array = `grep -i "top-" filename | awk '(print $3)'`;
