( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hello, hoping that someone can help me here. What i am doing is running the command
mac "foo.ape" -v
with perl by doing
@foobar=`mac \"foo.ape\" -v`;
i know that this would usually suppress the output of the called program and store the output into the variable @foobar, but this is not the case. it does in fact store the output, but it does not suppress it. so instead of a nice clean terminal when running my script i get
--- Monkey's Audio Console Front End (v 3.99) (c) Matthew T. Ashland - +-- Verifying... Progress: 7.1% (52.8 seconds remaining, 4.0 seconds total)
what i am trying to do is not have any of that output and just print a message like foo.ape file is ok or something similar. that is not the important part as i can accomplish that easily. what is important is that i just want that output to stop so that i can replace it. any help would be greatly appreaciated -Syco54645
