Does any of this (truncated) look helpful? relevant?
C:\>perldoc -q stderr Found in C:\Perl\lib\pods\perlfaq8.pod How can I capture STDERR from an external command? There are three basic ways of running external commands: system $cmd; # using system() $output = `$cmd`; # using backticks (``) open (PIPE, "cmd |"); # using open() With "system()", both STDOUT and STDERR will go the same place as +the script's STDOUT and STDERR, unless the "system()" command redirect +s them. Backticks and "open()" read only the STDOUT of your command. You can also use the "open3()" function from "IPC::Open3". Benjami +n Goldberg provides some sample code: To capture a program's STDOUT, but discard its STDERR: use IPC::Open3; use File::Spec; use Symbol qw(gensym); open(NULL, ">", File::Spec->devnull); my $pid = open3(gensym, \*PH, ">&NULL", "cmd"); while( <PH> ) { } waitpid($pid, 0); To capture a program's STDERR, but discard its STDOUT: use IPC::Open3; use File::Spec; use Symbol qw(gensym); open(NULL, ">", File::Spec->devnull); my $pid = open3(gensym, ">&NULL", \*PH, "cmd"); while( <PH> ) { }
