I'm perplexed! I have written a perl script that executes a .bat without specifying the absolute path to the file. When it executes in the script it acts as though it has executed but in reality it hasn't. If I execute the .bat file from the command line, it functions accordingly. I guess my question is, is why doesn't it execute from my perl script, and or is their a way to execute a .bat file in a perl script that emulates my command line execution? I have tried executing the .bat file using its absolute path, but without success. I am also using the 'system' command to execute it. I'm not sure if this is the problem, but I have also tried 'exec'and 'open'. Is their a way to gaurantee that my perl script runs in its current directory?
Thanks for the advice!
