in reply to running exe files of windows with pearl

Yes, you can run them through the system command

use strict; use warnings; my @commands; push(@commands, ['dir', '*.*', '/ad', '>', 'file1.txt']); push(@commands, ['dir', '*.*', '>', 'file2.txt']); push(@commands, ['dir', '*.*', '/b', '>', 'file3.txt']); foreach (@commands) { my $command = $_; system(@$command); if ($? == -1) { print "[Error] Failed to execute: [$!]\n"; } elsif ($? & 127) { printf "[Error] Child died with signal %d, %s coredump\n", ($? + & 127), ($? & 128) ? 'with' : 'without'; } else { printf "Child exited with value %d\n", $? >> 8; } } print "Done\n";

I've created an example script for you to start to work from and you can add your own commands once you have tested this initial script to get it working.
