bhagperl has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi Monks,

I have shell script which sets env variables.

I want to call this shell script from another perl script, and use those env variables in my perl script.

I am using "source" command for this. and calling with system function in perl as:

system("source env_set.sh");

And i am trying to access variable "svn" as $ENV{svn} in perl script. but $ENV{svn} returns blank. It is not set.

This is not working !!

Please help me.

Thanks in advance.

    This won't work. This post by Eliya explains you why - and provides a workaround.

    HTH, Rata
      Thanks Ratazong !! Have nice day!!
