in reply to EXPORT variables

export is a bash builtin and not meant to be called from Perl. If you want to altar your process's environment variables, you can do it by modifying the %ENV hash. (See perlvar). For example, $ENV{PATH} = '/home/abc/xyz/bin:' . $ENV{PATH};

    Thanks, Friedo. I am doing the following in the script:
    export PATH; Run a command that requires the above exported PATH.
    When running the script it says, "cannot execute. No file or directory". I am using backticks to execute the command. I tried using system and it didn't work either. Am I missing something? Also,Is there a way to run cp, mv commands of bash from perl scripts?
