( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Thanks for the detailed analysis and step by step walk through.

I tried the way you have advised. However, this time my error file says that "/sbin/sh: system: not found". Below is the code I tried,

-------- #!/usr/bin/perl system('ls -lrt > a.out'); -------- Comand $ at -f /tmp/ now commands will be executed using /sbin/sh job 1323397408.a at Fri Dec 9 13:23:28 2011 Error: /sbin/sh: system: not found

I am wondering why the external system command is not recognized in the perl.

Any thoughts my friend. When the perl script is executed with "At" command, it invokes a shell to execute the script. However, that shell is unable to recoginse the system command. Is that correct??

Please let me know what else I can try to resolve this issue.

Thanks In Advance

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.

  • 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).
