in thread system commands and returns

I don't see why; it's not obvious reading the module's code that that's necessary, and in any case you could always prompt for it in your program, right?

Improve your skills with Modern Perl: the free book.

    I have tried to access IPC::ShellCmd but been unsuccessful. I have Perl 5.8.8 but I am getting the command "Can't locate IPC/".

    It may be worth mentioning that I am using Perl that is packaged with an IBM product. I am not sure if this makes a difference or not, so I am not able to test it.
