Hi starface245,

The error message you provided leads me to believe you're on a Windows system. If that's not the case, this might not work, so feel free to disregard.

Putting the file name itself in double quotes might be the answer here.

$cmd = "perl script.pl < \"$file\""; (somewhat tested)

[Eily]: there are some special array variables that are not interpolated in double strings, like @*, @/, @(, and @)
[Eily]: is this documented somwhere?
[Eily]: "@{/}" does interpolate @/ though
[Eily]: (while the same for @*, @(, and @) throw a warning)
[talexb]: TStanley Cool. Yeah, that's about 45 minutes away. Nice spot.
