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

In the spirit of Perl, instead of doing something like
system ("<friendly neighborhood shutdown.exe with args here>");
is there a relatively straightforward Perl/Perlish way of rebooting a local (i.e. the one I'm sitting at) NT workstation? That is, use Perl modules, or Perl commands to accomplish the same thing (without, of course, calling an external shutdown.exe program)? Thanks in advance!
