NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     Shell - run shell commands	transparently within perl

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     See below.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       Date: Thu, 22 Sep 94 16:18:16 -0700
       Message-Id: <9409222318.AA17072@scalpel.netlabs.com>
       To: perl5-porters@isu.edu
       From: Larry Wall	<lwall@scalpel.netlabs.com>
       Subject:	a new module I just wrote

     Here's one	that'll	whack your mind	a little out.

	 #!/usr/bin/perl

	 use Shell;

	 $foo =	echo("howdy", "<funny>", "world");
	 print $foo;

	 $passwd = cat("</etc/passwd");
	 print $passwd;

	 sub ps;
	 print ps -ww;

	 cp("/etc/passwd", "/tmp/passwd");

     That's maybe too gonzo.  It actually exports an AUTOLOAD to the current
     package (and uncovered a bug in Beta 3, by	the way).  Maybe the usual
     usage should be

	 use Shell qw(echo cat ps cp);
