Anonymous Monk has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hello fellow monks, I don't know if my post is appropriate here, but I thought I give it a shot...
I have a perl script that calls some C scripts (which I have not written myself). I call the C scripts using the print `` command in my perl script and the C scripts run on the shell.
What I wanted to ask is the following: My scripts (both perl and C) run ok, but, since I have all the programs run on a server machine, I want to put the process in the background so that I can close my terminal. The thing is that the C programs show some output while they are executed and, when I tried to use perl my_program.pl > res & , the output of the C programs kept appearing on my screen.
I found something like 1>&2 on the Internet, is that correct?
