in reply to executing commands and getting output

If you want to see the output of the text, your best option is the Pipe.
Ironicly i just asked rfp for some advice about his 'Pesky Pipe' problem so i can give you the example script and output:

[root@wicca /root]# cat ppipe.pl #!/usr/bin/perl open(FILE,"/bin/netstat|") || die("can't open"); while(<FILE>){ print $_; } close(FILE); [root@wicca /root]# perl ppipe.pl Active Internet connections (w/o servers) Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address St +ate tcp 0 0 10.9.205.4:netbios-ssn aeon-gig:1028 ESTAB +LISHED tcp 0 0 10.9.205.4:ssh aeon-gig:4931 ESTAB +LISHED Active UNIX domain sockets (w/o servers) Proto RefCnt Flags Type State I-Node Path unix 5 [ ] DGRAM 644 /dev/log unix 2 [ ] DGRAM 1512 unix 2 [ ] DGRAM 1504 unix 2 [ ] DGRAM 904 [root@wicca /root]#
