in thread How to make a thread to wait till a command on shell get completed.

Basically I am using back tick operator due to which multiple instance of gzip get triggered as the thread is not waiting for the shell to return.

So how I can achieve blocking of thread in case of back tick.

    Back ticks also wait for the command to finish. Do you use &? Show some code!

    Backticks also block. (Unless you are deliberately backgrounding the command, in which case, don't do that!)

    Post your failing code and you'll get help.

    Can you share example code that recreates the issue that you're seeing? Also, do you have a need for using back ticks?

    In the mean time, without seeing your code, I can think of two suggestions. First, use the system command instead of backticks like BrowserUk suggested. Second, try using modules like Archive::Tar to extract your tar files instead of using backticks.
