( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Sistren and Brethren, Is there a way for me to redirect STDIN and STDERR from a program that I'm running from within a script back into the script. Below is a snippet of a wrapper script that runs a couple of other scripts. This wrapper runs from a cron job and I'd like to be able to log the other script's output to a file for later viewing. It works right now, but only for STDOUT (though I suppose I could redirect STDERR to STDOUT in the other script).
{ # import PO data my $poImportDataOutErr; open (PO_IMPORT_DATA, '/usr2/web/tpm-secure/data_import/poImpo |'); while(<PO_IMPORT_DATA>) { $poImportDataOutErr .= $_; } close (PO_IMPORT_DATA); open(DIL, DATA_IMPORT_LOG); print DIL $poImportDataOutErr; close(DIL); }

- I think scsh is cool.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
