Do you really need to access all those commands? E.g. perl can do anything awk can do, you might use DBI/DBD::Oracle instead of sqlplus, File::Find instead of find; opendir, readdir, and maybe stat or one of the -X operators (I see more code that does 'ls -l' and cuts out the file size than I care to) instead of ls; @INC and -x instead of which...

I do write scripts occasionally which access unix commands, but the last time I did that, the command was 'patch', and there didn't seem to be anything on CPAN, and it saved alot of perl programming. And maybe if you have a sqlplus script which outputs a formatted report, I might keep that, since it would be alot of work to redo it in perl. Otherwise I'd look at what you really need.

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.
