Have a look at IPC::Run for a robust implementation of this, or for simple uses that don't require pty emulation and you don't need to capture the output, open will do what you want. Here's a barebones look at both:

use 5.010; use autodie; # With basic open() open my $sort, '|-', 'sort -n'; printf $sort "%d\n", rand 100 for 1..10; close $sort; # With IPC::Run use IPC::Run qw/start finish pump/; print "IPC::Run output:\n"; my $r = start [ 'perl' ], \my $in, \my $out, \my $err or die "Can't start: $!"; $in .= 'print "Hello, world!\n";'; finish $r; say $out; die 'ERROR: $err' if length $err;


13 14 34 37 44 63 83 86 90 95 IPC::Run output: Hello, world!
use strict; use warnings; omitted for brevity.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
