Though I am sure that the better approach is to change the first script, here is a (very) simple solution to feed the two filenames to the script.

I assume your first script looks something like this:
use strict; my ($filename_in, $filename_out); while ($filename_in eq "") { print "IN file: "; $filename_in = <>; chomp $filename_in; } while ($filename_out eq "") { print "OUT file: "; $filename_out = <>; chomp $filename_out; } print "IN: [$filename_in]\n"; print "OUT: [$filename_out]\n";

Then you could use this script to execute the first script and feed the two filenames to it:
use strict; my $command = "./"; my ($filename_in, $filename_out) = qw(infile outfile); system ("echo \"$filename_in\n$filename_out\n\" | $command");
Assuming, of course, you are on a Un*x machine, echo is in your path,the first script is called "", etc.

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.
