I'll assume you can have more than one project.txt file in different locations, and that the directory is relative to the directory that project.txt file is in. $otherscript contains the script that starts with the code you gave.

Then you can do something like:

# Assuming you already have read/set the values for $output_dir and $m +ap_file... # and a list of project.txt files is given in @ARGV use File::Spec::Functions qw(rel2abs); use File::Basename qw(dirname); while(<>) { if(/^REVISION_LOCATION:(.*)/) { # $ARGV contains the name of the project.txt file you're readi +ng system($otherscript, "--root=".rel2abs($1, dirname($ARGV)), "- +-outdir=$out_dir", "--map=$map_file"); } }

Alternatively you could put this code somewhere inside the $otherscript and call the relevant function instead of the system call.
