in thread why IPC::Open3 can't execute MS-DOS "dir" command?

Change "dir * \/b\/s" to be "cmd /C dir * \/b\/s"
Seems it can't work, got the following error:
Execute Command: cmd /c dir * /b/s [ERROR] (1) : Parameter format not correct - "s"".
And if I remove the parameters "/b/s" it stopped again.

[Corion]: Hi marto!
[Corion]: The fun show at $work continues, as The Big Project is now in its second week of frantic live-bugfixing and weekend releases where nobody knows what went live. Nothing has been tested anyway.

Corion watches from the sidelines. Or rather, from behind, as my system only gets output from that process and my programs adhere strictly to the GIGO design principle.
[erix]: ah, that's nice to hear Corion :)
[Corion]: erix: Yeah, the sad thing is that all I can do is document things, so I can point fingers when the auditors come :-/
