in thread perl windows backtick problem

If I maually run the command without any args, it runs fine: ... I have to qualify the script with paths containing such special characters.

But you DONT have to split it into two, quote and escape the WHOLE path to the exe, use Re^3: system() implementation on Windows (again)

cmd /x /c doesn't like newlines ...


$ perl -V:sh sh='cmd /x /c';

Read help cmd

Read exec always invokes the shell? win32

Use IPC::System::Simple capture/capturex
