in thread Want to Create Unix group using perl script

Hi, I got it. but I want my script just take group id (not group name) and if it exists then run chgrp,chmod g+s command as root.Basically my script is running under my cronjob but to run chmod , chgrp I need to become "root" first. so how should I do that

abhishek~/perl ~> cat grp.pl #!/usr/bin/perl $in=<STDIN>; ($name, $passwd, $gid, $members) = getgrgid($in); print "group name: $name \t group id: $gid \n"; if ( $in == $gid ) { print "Success\n"; #how to become "root" here.. exec ("chgrp -R $gid /home/abhishek/cpp") || die "could not do chgrp $ +!"; } else { print "Group id does not exists, you need to give the existing group i +d \n"; } abhishek~/perl ~>
