I even looked trying something like this:
system ("$dir_cmd >> out.txt");
but the output comes all mangled up, with so many process's trying to write to the same file

Did you try something like this:

system( "$dir_cmd > out$i.txt" );
so that each thread would write to a different output file?

Or, since you just want to read output from commands that are running in subshells, have you looked at creating an array of file handles that open "$dir_cmd |"? I haven't tried it, but I expect it would be possible (maybe even really simple) to loop over that array of handles doing non-blocking reads until their all done. (But I'm not running my windows partition just now, so I'd have to try it some other time...)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
