Damn it - won't work :(
#!/usr/bin/perl # example paths can be: # apachectl # apache2ctl # httpd my $path = 'httpd'; print "Content-Type: text/html \n\n"; print "Perl: " . $] . "<br />"; my $output = `$path -v`; my $output2 = system(qq|$path -v|); print "OUTPUT: ($path -v) " . $output . "<br />"; print "OUTPUT 2: ($path -v, as system()) " . $output2 . "<br />"; my @split = split /:/, $output; if ($split[1] !~ /\d\.\d\.\d/) { print qq|Cant find Apache version <br />|; } else { print qq|$split[1] <br />|; }
..yet all that gives is:
Perl: 5.008004 OUTPUT: (httpd -v) OUTPUT 2: (httpd -v, as system()) -1 Cant find Apache version
Seems that it doesn't like giving the results with `` or system(). Any suggestions? TIA Andy

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
