CX or Systemby TCPDump (Initiate)
|on Apr 04, 2012 at 18:26 UTC||Need Help??|
TCPDump has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am a fairly compete newbie to Perl, but am wanting to learn because it seems to give me more power than other things I am trying.
I have the following miniature program:========================
What I am trying to do is run the system command:password_decode $(grep "name=\"db\"" /opt/SecureSphere/etc/bootstrap.xml|cut -d\" -f4)
and then pass the output of this command to $dbpass
Then print $dbpass
Should be fairly simple.....but...I get the following:
It clears the screen so line 3 is executing, and it seems to do line 7 correctly.....which seems to indicate the problem is in line 5
By itself the command runs without a problem and decodes the password involved. So there has to be something I am missing with the cx command.
Any help would be appreciated as I have a networking background, not a programming background, also if you have good references, let me know them.
Many, many thanks in advance
