Calling a perl script from another perl script
Posted by pragatid (pragatid), 9 July 2007Hi,
I am new to Perl programming. Let me explain my requirement over here. I have a Perl script located in /usr/sbin/ say script A and I want to invoke this script via web after accepting some user inputs.
What I am thinking is , I will write a perl script(script B) which will invoke my script A and I will post my HTML form to script B. I will be using tomcat as a web server.
Please guide me if this is going to work or let me know if there are any suggestions...
I am just doubtful that would script B be able to invoke scrip A which is located in /usr/sbin/ ?
Posted by admin (Graham Ellis), 10 July 2007You can invoke one perl script from within another in exactly the same way that you can invoke any other application (or any operating system command, come to that!). This may leave the two scripts rather loosley coupled, though, so you may prefer to look at require and include statements.
