in reply to system calls problem

Is "blabla.exe" a program which runs for a long time? system returns when the program called from it exits. If you want to fire off a program without waiting for it, you'll have to look into calling fork and exec yourself (system does a fork and exec, but waits for the child process to finish).

Update: From the "blabla.exe" I infer that you're using a Windows system. A look at Win32::Process could also help if portability is not an issue.

[stevieb]: I don't know what you mean. I write the code in C/C++ that accesses the ICs per the datasheet, wrap it for Perl, then use them. My code ensures that the functions/methods from Perl do the right thing for the chips/sensors etc
[stevieb]: At least that's what I'm working on right now. I've also been updating my automated test software Test::BrewBuild so it handles this work properly. It's not really easy meshing high level languages with low-level hardware :)
[stevieb]: this link is probably better for an overview of my test software
