in reply to Re: new shell - perl
in thread new shell - perl

some 1 has written a script(say which sets up few setenv's and creates a new shell and exists the scripts. now the setenv's are accessible, the another script access those setenv's to run. I want to automate it, so that i don't have to run the first script and then the second i want to add both of them in one.

    That looks like a very different question ;-)

    You can just exec 'script2'; At the end of the first script.

      i did tried that but after executing the statement which creates a new shell, the script exits and i get a prompt.
        You don't have to create a new shell in the script that changes the environment:
        # File $ENV{FOO} = 'bar'; exec 'perl', ''; # File print $ENV{FOO}, $/; # launch it: $ perl bar
