in reply to how to make this perl code run

Sure, no problem. I'll give you the hint that it involves Exporter and some command-line flags. So is this homework or an interview?

Update: Well, since moritz put in a great solution, mine is


#11929 First ask yourself `How would I do this without a computer?' Then have the computer do it the same way.

    Your solution is similar to mine, in fact I started with a similar code, but then I reduced it to a point where Exporter is not needed.

      I would argue that your code modifies the first 5 lines, whereas mine actually executes them.

[Corion]: thezip: start "some title" path\to\that\ application, but that will open another console window
[Corion]: thezip: If you want to confuse your users, use system(1, "that\\command" );, which will make Perl launch it in the background
[Corion]: That will keep the console window open even though the user can't type into it anymore
[thezip]: So I have a script that generates a log file. After script completion, I want tohave VIM open this logfile.
[thezip]: i don't get the command line "back" until I close VIM. No what I want to happen...
[thezip]: I currently don't have access to CYGWIN, else I'd just do a tail -f on the logfile.
