Excuse me, I've overlooked that line.

What is your OS? What shows 'which echo' on your system?

This code works pretty well on my system:

#!/usr/bin/env perl use strict; use warnings; use 5.010; my $url = '"www.youtube.com/watch?v=mark"'; system('echo', $url); $url = "www.youtube.com/watch?v=mark"; system('echo', $url);
