bsummerer has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I looked on the site search and tutorial on how to do this, but searching for "command line" gives me perl execution options...

Anywho, I put together a script that pings an URL then if it's dead, it logs the error and runs a netstart/netstop from the command line. Haven't figured that part out yet. If I'm running the script at, say c:\ and I want to run a file called "something" with the arguements "this and that", how would I do that (essentially what is the perl equivalent of "execvp(argv[0],argv)" in c++?)
