Reading and setting the environment from a shell script for the calling programby robby123 (Initiate)

robby123 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Im new to perl... we have a shell script(env_set.sh) which basically sets some environment variables,I need to call this shell script inside my perl program in such a way that changes made by the shell script should be reflected when the control comes back to the perl program (something like what we do on the command line ( . ./env_set.sh ) we used to do this by calling the env_set.sh inside another shell program main.sh this way (. env_set.sh). Now we need to rewrite the main.sh in perl but wanted to reuse the env_set.sh ksh script. is there a way to achive this. Thanks in advance Robby
