input from another program
Posted by revtopo (revtopo), 23 October 2007Hi there,
I have to use the output from the other program as an input to my program. There are two arrays like @array1, @array2 in the first program. Now I have to use these to arrays in my second program like
@data = (\@array1, \@array2);
How could i get this?
Posted by KevinAD (KevinAD), 23 October 2007use the qx// operator to get output from another program.
my @data = qx/otherprogram/;
if "otherprogram" returns a list of arrays then all should be fine. qx// is the same as backtiks `` but is easier to read, especially on forums when posting sample code.
Or you can look into using "use" or "require" to import those arrays into the main program.
