If the script is a purely command line program that takes its inputs from stdin, you can avoid IPC::open3 by feeding the required interactions to via a pipe.

Say the script requires two lines of input, like this one:

#! perl -slw use strict; chomp( my $interact1 = <STDIN> ); chomp( my $interact2 = <STDIN> ); print "Got: $interact1 $interact2";

Then you can feed it the required inputs and retrieve its output like this:

C:\test>perl -E"$p = open I, '-|', '( echo fred & echo jim ) | interac +t.pl'; say for <I>;" Got: fred jim

This often will not work for programs that expect passwords.


With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    [LanX]: Eily: do you live in an English speaking country?
    [LanX]: I think foreigners tend to simplify their phrases, whereby often native speakers don't know how to adapt
    [Eily]: nope, France
    [LanX]: That's pretty true for every language
    [LanX]: so don't worry, anyway most spoken language in the world is broken English
    LanX (especially in the streets of Singapore)
    [Eily]: yes I know, native English speakers are actually a minority among English speakers :)
