in thread Heredoc with system call

I can see what you are saying, but when I tried your code, I got this error;
system("lsnrctl <<\"EOF\" set password oracle set current_listener LISTENER status EOF ") == 0 or die "Couldn't run listener control: $?";

<< was unexpected at this time. Couldn't run listener control: 256 at C:\ line 4.

    Oh, right. What I wrote would be valid for something like a bash shell but not for anything on Windows where it doesn't understand anything like heredocs. Since win32 perl only pretends to use fork, I found myself quickly unable to write a native CreateProcess call and then write to its stdin. I dunno. I'm just not a Windows programmer.
