System call in Windowsby csarid (Sexton)
|on Oct 24, 2008 at 19:03 UTC||Need Help??|
csarid has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am running a perl script from "windows" which does a few things and then I want to replace a value in a file with a new value. (Note: this works find on unix but not windows).
Here is the code for the script:
system(perl -pib -e "s/CAT/mouse/g" 'D:\tmp\file.txt');
The Data file file.txt contains the line:
"The CAT in the HAT"
I've tried many combinations google, search this site, and have not seen any example that's similar.
Any help would be appreciated.
