Congratulations, works for me :)

open my $source,'-|',"bash /tmp/" or die "$!"; my $dump= do { local $/; <$source>}; my $VAR1; eval $dump; print $VAR1->{MONK}; #> jfroebe

lanx@nc10-ubuntu:/tmp$ cat . /tmp/ perl -MData::Dumper -e' print Dumper \%ENV' lanx@nc10-ubuntu:/tmp$ cat export MONK=jfroebe lanx@nc10-ubuntu:/tmp$

Thats an extremely stable approach, I can't think of a way to make it break! =)

you could even try to generate the code from dynamically on the fly, hence avoiding any security/dependencies issues.

works! =)

my $bashcode=<<'_bash_'; . /tmp/; perl -MData::Dumper -e "print Dumper \%ENV"; _bash_ open my $source, '-|', qq{bash -c '$bashcode'} or die "$!"; my $dump= do { local $/; <$source>}; my $VAR1; eval $dump; print $VAR1->{MONK}; #> jfroebe


far less code, same result

my $bashcode=<<'__bash__'; . /tmp/; perl -MData::Dumper -e 'print Dumper \%ENV'; __bash__ my $VAR1; eval qx{bash -c "$bashcode"}; print $VAR1->{MONK}; #> jfroebe
