I am running a system command to a file passing the data to a filehandle, but the if clause does not work. My goal is to run a system app command and if it creates a file greater than 0 bytes then use MIME:Lite to email the data otherwise just "touch" a file.Any ideas? thank you!
## Set pragmas use strict; my $foreigntapes="/usr/local/log/foreign_tapes.log"; delete $ENV{'IFS'}; local $ENV{'PATH'}= "/usr/epoch/bin:/usr/epoch/EB/bin:/usr/bin +:/usr/sbin:/bin:/sbin"; open (OUT, ">$foreigntapes") || die "could not open file:$!"; my @ftapes = grep s/^barcode=//, `evmvol -w label_state=1`; my $svsel = select; select OUT; $| = 1; print OUT "@ftapes"; if ( -s OUT ) { print "file is greater than 0 bytes \n"; }

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
