in reply to executing a program


We really need more info.

  • Are you looking for the output of the program you are trying to run to be displayed in the webpage?
  • Is the program you are trying to run a perl script or an exe?
  • Can you use a FORM with method="POST" action="" ?
  • Can you use Win32::Process or Win32::Spawn to launch you prog?

      You guys have all been realy realy good help. To asnwer a few questions, I have no clue what a deamon process is and I do have access to the webserver, it's in my room. To answer AcidHawk's question,

    • No, I am not looking for the output in the webpage.
    • The program is a perl script.
    • I could us a form with method post, but i don't know what that would accomplish since i'm not sending data to the perl script and I want the perl script to run even when i close the webpage.
    • I will take a look at Win32::Process and Win32::Spawn and see, but I don't know why I couldn't. I just don't know what they are.
        Posting code that you think is not working also helps us find issues quickly..

        Could it be that you need to specify the perl binary before the script.. ie
