in reply to How to escape white space in command line arguments

If you want to escape the spaces in the string of an array.You try the following,
my %hash=(1=>"one"); my $str='C:/Program Files/Perl Express/sample.txt'; $str=~s/ /\\ /g; @ARGV = ($str,%hash); system("./script.pl @ARGV");
In the script.pl,I printed the array @ARGV. It printed the Path and hash keys and values correctly.
