in thread Advice/help with beginner script (file sorting, execute command line command)
Sorry, but you must be kidding. Sure you can do things in power shell, but Perl is so much better, more expressive, more powerful, faster and so on. I am using regularly Unix shell scripting to launch my Perl program because it is sometimes useful to use OS scripts to do a few things (such as defining environment variables), but I would never recommend using sh or csh or ksh to replace Perl.
