Re^3: system commands and returnsby perl_zen (Initiate)

This worked and thank you. I had to make two small changes (noted in the code below) but I have success.
The first change was enclosing the script execution command in single quotes and the second was adding perl to the command call.
The end result is two perl scripts.
The orignal script (with updates)
and script2.pl (with the script for the "other_user" shell)
I would like to get the IPC::ShellCmd package to see if this will eliminate the need of a second script file; however, this takes care of my needs for the day and moves me closer to my goal
Thanks to all of you.
