in thread Capturing both STDOUT, STDERR and exit status

Thanks, this is nice and clean. I did make the qx output scalar, otherwise it gives me a list of output lines.

sub executeCommand { my $command = join ' ', @_; ($? >> 8, $_ = qx{$command 2>&1}); } my ($status, $output) = executeCommand ('/bin/ls', '/');

    You have to reverse the return list, otherwise you'll refer to the previous value of $?:
    sub executeCommand_wrong { my $command = join ' ', @_; ($? >> 8, $_ = qx{$command 2>&1}); } sub executeCommand_correct { my $command = join ' ', @_; ($_ = qx{$command 2>&1}, $? >> 8); } my $command = 'echo -n ciao ; false'; my ($status, $output) = executeCommand_wrong ($command); print "[$output] -> [$status]\n"; ($output, $status) = executeCommand_correct($command); print "[$output] -> [$status]\n"; __END__ [ciao] -> [0] [ciao] -> [1]
    If you cannot live without having $status as the first returned value, just use reverse:
    sub executeCommand { my $command = join ' ', @_; reverse ($_ = qx{$command 2>&1}, $? >> 8); }

    Flavio (perl -e 'print(scalar(reverse("\nti.xittelop\@oivalf")))')

    Don't fool yourself.
