in reply to Shell script with PERL

In order to use a shell script with perl, you can either use backticks to issue the command, or use the system command.

However, the first question would be 'why?', as normally Perl is capable of anything that can be done in a normal shell script.

A Monk aims to give answers to those who have none, and to learn from those who know more.
