in reply to Question on qx

The output of qx// is whatever the program inside's STDOUT is. In your specific case you send all of the program's STDOUT to a file, so there is none left for perl to read.

    if BUU's explanation wasn't enough, perhaps perlop can help
      If you're looking for the return code of the command you're running, you can use system().
        qx// also sets $?.
