in thread Correct way to capture command output to a file in Perl.

If you do it like that you would not use backticks but system() as you would not capture any output.

But I would not do it like that as in the error-case it is more difficult to determine what went wrong (e.g. the command you call may be able to run, but may not be able to write to the file).
