<CTRL-D> can be displayed, printed, sent, or whatever by chr(4). However, this won't fix your script, since 1) echo isn't a Perl command, 2) if it were, it wouldn't print to smbclient, which I assume you're trying to do, and 3) you shouldn't need to send a <CTRL-D> if you do IPC the right way. You need something like

!#/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my ($victim, $message) = ("joe", "bloop"); # open an output pipe to the external program open SMB, "| smbclient -M $victim"; # print on the pipe's handle print SMB $message; # close the handle, which implicitly sends an EOF close SMB;

Hope that helps.
