Did I miss something really obvious?
Well...

The following code shows a successful 'cd' for me

#! /usr/bin/perl use strict; use IPC::Run qw( start pump finish ); my ($input, $output, $errput); $input=""; $output=""; my $subp = start([ '/bin/bash' ], \$input, \$output, \$errput) or die $@; print $errput; $input .= "cd /work/drjohnson\n"; pump $subp until length $input == 0; $input .= "pwd\n"; pump $subp until $output =~ /\n/; print "$output\n"; $subp->finish;
If you have a runnable example of where it doesn't work for you, I'd be glad to try it. You might also try IPCRUNDEBUG. Do an 'export IPCRUNDEBUG=details' before running your script. I believe what the author meant was that you couldn't do things like 'cd' (well, chdir) in your parent script between pump calls.
