It shouldn't, unless you're writing to P. See my response below.

What you're probably seeing is from.pl writing to stdout, and you're not getting a count of 4 underneath the words.

    You're correct about the placement of the pipe (and not getting a count without its correct placement).

    But on my system this works:

    open (P, "./from.pl |");

    and this does not work:

    open (P, "from.pl |");

    From the shell I must always specify a script's path, unless the path is defined in PATH.
