in reply to mapping a network drive

You can assign a drive name yourself:

system 'net.exe use I: \\\\server_1212\\d$';

Or, use backticks to capture the command output.

@result = `net.exe use * \\\\server_1212\\d$`;

    The latter is probably a better choice, as it won't fail if a network path is alreadi assigned to the letter I.

    this is the reason why I was using net use *,...i wanted any available drive, the I drive could be mapped to somewhere else on another machine….Anyway, I thought there might be more elegant way to grab the dive letter assigned rather than having to write a pattern matching code. Thanks for the tip.
