  2.  #!/usr/bin/perl
  4.  `plink alcatel@ -pw alcatel ls /usr`;

The error message is:

First off please use code tags,

Second thats not related to perl, unless it works in Shell for *nix.

also why is ls should'nt you be piping /usr in there??

  1.  Plinx XXXXXXXXXXX xxxxx@xxx || ls /usr

But when iexecute this command in prompt line, it works.

In perl script , if i put this command between `'s, it must execute this command.

It's OK now, but not with `'s with 's :-)

One more question,

system('mail -s "trial" "trial"');

when i write this the script hangs on.

almost for got to get more detail, it may hang but thats because we didnt end it if it had errors.


Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. system('mail -s "trial" "trial"') || die "Error: $!";

and please put all your code in code tags
