in reply to IPC::Run and ACLs?

G'day larryl,

Take a look at Capture::Tiny. That may do what you want. If not, its SEE ALSO sections lists more than 20 modules with similar or related functionality (one or more of these may be suitable).

[Note: I can't comment on the ACL-awareness of any of those modules.]

    Many thanks, I was not aware of Capture::Tiny, I see there is also a Capture::Tiny::Extended. It's not immediately clear to me how I would use those while sending info to the STDIN of the script, will have to look at that...

    The SEE ALSO section in Capture::Tiny is useful, I think I will check out IPC::Open3 and IPC::Open3::Simple since those handle all of STDIN, STDOUT and STDERR - hopefully they will not suffer from the same permissions problem as IPC::Run.

      "... Capture::Tiny ... not immediately clear to me how I would use those while sending info to the STDIN ..."

      Looking at other responses you've posted in this thread, I do see STDIN mentioned. I didn't notice that when I first replied: Capture::Tiny probably is unsuitable.

      IPC::Open3 is part of the core Perl distribution; if that turns out to suitable (ACL-wise), then there's no installation requirement.
