in reply to Re^2: problems calling bash script
in thread problems calling bash script

Both the script are working fine for me. The bash script contains,

#!/bin/bash echo `date`;

The Perl script contains,

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; print `./bash_script`;

You can take this as sample and continue the process. You may forget to mention the path.
