    I was going to say

    Combine with Win32::ShellQuote

    since to use unicode Win32::Unicode systemW needs to use the shell, so, but that just reveals you can't mix the two willy nilly, probably better to just use system_detached

    *groan*

    Thank you. Using this module was the only solutions that worked. However, the module's author stating "THIS MODULE IS ALPHA LEVEL AND MANY BUGS." makes me feel not very good.

      Well, feel better, no need to worry :)

      Here is an level upgrade for rt://Win32-Unicode, that makes it use the shell the official safe way with Win32::ShellQuote

      You use mySystemW and myExecWjust like you would systemW and execW

      sub myExecW { use Win32::Unicode::Process qw//; my $pi = My_create_process( @_ ) or return 1; Win32::Unicode::Process::close_handle($pi->{thread_handle}); Win32::Unicode::Process::close_handle($pi->{process_handle}); return 0; } ## end sub myExecW sub mySystemW { use Win32::Unicode::Process qw//; my $pi = My_create_process( @_ ) or return 1; Win32::Unicode::Process::close_handle( $pi->{thread_handle} ); Win32::Unicode::Process::wait_for_input_idle( $pi->{process_handle +} ); Win32::Unicode::Process::wait_for_single_object( $pi->{process_han +dle} ); my $exit_code = Win32::Unicode::Process::get_exit_code( $pi->{process_handle} ); Win32::Unicode::Process::close_handle( $pi->{process_handle} ); return defined $exit_code ? $exit_code : 1; } ## end sub mySystemW sub My_create_process { use Win32::Unicode::Process qw//; use Win32::ShellQuote qw//; @_ or return; my $program = ""; my $cmdline = ""; if( @_ > 1 ) { ( $program ) = @_; $cmdline = Win32::ShellQuote::quote_system_string( @_ ); } else { ( $cmdline ) = @_; } die "Bad program name ( $program )" if $program =~ m/[<>"?*|]/; $program = Win32::Unicode::Process::utf8_to_utf16( $program ) . Win32::Unicode::Process::NULL(); $cmdline = Win32::Unicode::Process::utf8_to_utf16( $cmdline ) . Win32::Unicode::Process::NULL(); return Win32::Unicode::Process::create_process( $program, $cmdline + ); } ## end sub My_create_process
