( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I am attempting to grep the total system memory of a Solaris box with the (prtconf | grep Memory) command, and then user Reg expressions to gather the RAM amount but I received the error: Could not open pipe for prtconf. This should work, Any help would be appreciated.
#!/usr/local/bin/perl -w use FileHandle; $memcmd=`/usr/sbin/prtconf | grep Memory`; $tmem = 0; $tmem_idle = new FileHandle ("$memcmd") || die "Could not open pipe fo +r prtconf: $!\n"; while (<$tmem_idle>) { if ( $_ =~ m/^.*\s+(\d+)\s+\d+$/ ) { $tmem = $1; } } close $tmem_idle; $tmem_busy = $tmem; # Just print the info! print "The total Memory amount is: $tmem_busy"; exit 0;
O.K. -- syntax kills me again. Many thanks for the help.

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.
