in thread system function not handling string properly

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);
