You can call an executable installed on your system by using `script path`
, and you can pass it a value by doing `script path arguments`
. The script (if it's Perl) can then access these arguments the regular way, through @ARGV, and print a result, and you should be able to access the result if you did $var = `script path arguments`
. I'll go test this now and see if my memory works properly :)
my $arguments = 'beep';
my $var = `perl process.pl $arguments`;
my $var = shift @ARGV;
$var = uc($var);
If I do perl print.pl
, I get the result BEEP
, which means it's passing back and forth properly.
