in thread Check if "System" was succesful

The usual (and slightly more compact) way to check a system call is:

system( $cmd ) == 0 or die "System call failed: $!";

The " == 0" deals with the fact that system returns 0/false on success, not true like most perl functions.


If the information in this post is inaccurate, or just plain wrong, don't just downvote - please post explaining what's wrong.
That way everyone learns.
