in thread How can I control interactive cli executables on Windows from Perl

I understand. Since that is the case, here is what I recommend.

You can use two additional methods not already talked about above. first one is the system command which will allow you to execute commands to the exe and wait for completion.

system ("$ENV{'WINDIR'}\\system32\\telnet 10.1.1.10"); # OR ANY EXE AN +D PARAMETERS

Otherwise, you can use the backtick to take the output of a command and place it into a variable.

$test = `dir c:\\`; print scalar $test;

You can dump the output of system into a variable as well. Hope this helps

[1nickt]: pryrt I guess I don;t really care if user 42 logs on as 42.0 ... more of an academic question at this point.
[LanX]: jdporter: open PIPE,'-|' ?
[LanX]: oh you want the result line by line?
[jdporter]: ok, LanX, then what?
[jdporter]: It doesn't have to be line by line. Just "my program" "writes" to the external prog and also/then "reads" from it.
LanX open (You are not allowed to open to a command that pipes both in and out, but see IPC::Open2, IPC::Open3, and Bidirectional Communication with Another Process in perlipc for alternatives.)
[jdporter]: IPC::Open2, I guess
[jdporter]: yes, that
