in thread System, exec different behaviour with spaces

I did go through that thread, but kind of got lost on the way. If I'm reading it right the answer was 'it's probably something odd ActiveState have done to their version of the codebase' (unless they've compiled with odd settings for wait timers - which I wouldn't rule out given the daft settings they use for randbits).

I guess my immediate fix is to use system and put up with having the perl process hang around longer than it needs to.

Thanks for the help.

[stevieb]: 16.96 hours of runtime of a Raspberry Pi on a 12v, 7.2Ah battery :) Now to watch now long it takes to recharge the battery completely with my 18v solar cells in the sun :)
[stevieb]: my high-range estimate was 18 hours
[stevieb]: battery was at about 95% capacity when the test began
[stevieb]: in the meantime while it was on battery, I got my shift register issues fixed, as well as certain interrupt issues
