Problems Returning Different Values to Shell Script using Perl Script
In a shell script, you can substitute any result into any aspect of the script by enclosing the routine in backquotes. For example:
$ export IE=`myScript.pl $someShellValue $etc`
I'm not much of a csh
user, but I believe it would be something
% setenv IE `myScript.pl $someShellValue $etc`
I really don't understand your last statement:
But since i'm outputing to screen a menu, that text will get into setenv.
. Would you restate it with different words, please.
