in reply to system, pipes, shell, quoting

Simpliest solution: break dependacy on shell. Just don't use it: replace system with IPC::Run and you don't need to call shell to pipe output from one program to another anymore.

use IPC::Run qw(run); run([$program1, $file1], '|', [$program2, '-x', '-y'], '|', [$program3], ">$file2", '2>/dev/null') or die "Error: $?";
