in reply to Calling Windows Batch from Perl, double-quote appearing out of nowhere

Runs fine in cygwin with the following changes:

  • what is the '1' parameter in the system call for? Had to remove first param.
  • Added #!/usr/bin/perl at start

Update: 1 has been answered below, but it seems that feature not supported in Perl under cygwin

    its a wart, see perlport#system, although, if you don't know the answer, or the question, might want to pause and consider if you should jump in :)
      Actually I ran the OPs program on my system, and the program failed because of the wart, so it was a legitimate query. My perl version (5.14) is more recent than the OP, so the program should run, warts and all. :-)

        but you're not running on windows, cygwin isn't windows

    The feature isn't supported on Unix/Linux either - I think that's the reason why it is also absent from Cygwin Perl.
