in reply to system() requires double ctrl-c

I am not trying to minimize your complaint, but anytime I've ever had to:
#!/usr/local/bin/perl system("some_long_running_shell_command"); some_other_stuff();
I just wrote a shell script that did "some_long_running_shell_command", then called a Perl script...but that's just me.
