view full story

http://www.unix.com – Hi Folks, I have 2 perl scripts and I need to execute 2nd perl script from the 1st perl script in WINDOWS. In the 1st perl script that I had, I am calling the 2nd script main.pl =========== print "This is my main script\n"; `perl C:\\Users\\sripathg\\Desktop\\scripts\\hi.pl`; hi.pl ( this script I am calling from the firstperlscript.pl) ==== #!perl -w print "hii Giridhar....\n"; what my problem is after executing the main.pl, it is just opening the physical hi.pl(this script that I am calling from main.pl) but the hi.pl is not executed. I want the hi.pl (HowTos)
