in thread forking in winblows ?

So why not put the commands into a batch file and pipe the output of the commands to a file?
test.bat -------- dir c:\some\path\ >>c:\path\to\test.txt
then use the system call and read the output in perl:
system("c:\path\to\test.bat"); open(OUTPUT, "<c:/path/to/test.txt") || die "couln't open ...yadda..." +; @output=<OUTPUT>; close(OUTPUT);

Just my $0.02.
