in reply to system command is not working

check the current working directory when execute the command, it's possiblely in the user's home directory who execute the command . or try this
#!/usr/bin/perl # use strict; use warnings; system("ls -lrt > /tmp/a.out");

    Hi, Thanks for the reply. Definitely works whatever you have suggested. However, if I execute a shell script with "at" command like below at -f now it doesnt work. The system command in the perl script is not recognized. Can you please try your end.. Thanks, Gulla
      where is the time specification for your "at" comand?. It seems that your script waits forever
