in thread Strange system call failure in OS X

I have more system calls which might be cleaner if I send them as a list. Do I break it into a separate item for each argument? Any need for quotes? Here are the other system calls. They do actually work as they are but I would like to learn how to use the system call the "right" way so to speak.

# Disable autologin @args = ("defaults delete /Library/Preferences/ a +utoLoginUser"); system(@args); # exit our test version here before doing anything irrevocable exit 0; # Serialize Adobe CS6 Design and Web Premium @args = ("/Library/AdminToolBox/AdobeSerialization adobe_prtk --tool=V +olumeSerialize --provfile=/Library/AdminToolBox/prov.xml"); system(@args); # Bind to Active Directory @args = ("/Library/AdminToolBox/"); system(@args); # This time we'll use exec since we are restarting anyway @args = ("/sbin/shutdown -r now"); exec(@args);
