in reply to backslashes in shell commands

A good substitute for backticks is the capturex function from IPC::System::Simple. It's like backticks in list context, and it will not invoke the shell. If you want the shell, then use the capture function. For example:
#!/usr/bin/perl -l use strict; use warnings; use IPC::System::Simple qw/capturex/; my @args = "%s I\x27ll"; my $cmd = capturex("printf", @args); print $cmd;
I really hope this helps you.
