Hello Daral, and welcome to the Monastery!
As 2teez explained, you can use system to run an external command from within a Perl script. But note that system returns the command’s exit status, not its output. If you want to capture the command’s output, use backticks (or the equivalent qx operator):
my $ls = `ls`;
print "Output from ls:\n\n", $ls, "\n";
my $con = `ipconfig`;
print "Output from ipconfig:\n\n", $con, "\n";
Update: To capture both the output and the exit status, use the CPAN module Capture::Tiny.
Hope that helps,
