Any one knows what's the problem?
... yes...since you are trying to run the msdos dir command, i assume you are on win32 and not an msdos emulator under linux;-)
IPC::Open3 dosn't work on win32... see IPC::Open3 failure on Win32 for alternatives.....IIRC win32 dosn't have an easy select on pipes..... and IPC::Open3 requires that..... but maybe windows7 will correct that shortcoming
