in reply to Redirect output of the system() command

The executed command inherits STDOUT, STDIN, STDERR from the process that executes it. So, you can simply reopen STDERR and STDOUT to /dev/null and then execute the command. See 'perldoc -f open' for details on how to restore your STDERR and STDOUT after the command finishes.
