    Unanswered: Calling a program using a Perl script?

    Hi all,

    This is a really noobie question but here goes. I have a Unix program that I need to automate meaning run multiple times hands off. The program has 3 command prompts (inputs) where I have to type: "no", input filename, and output filename. Is there a way I can do this automatically with Perl?

    Many thanks,
    ~Irian

    perl can't run your program automatically, at least not in the way you are thinking, you would use a cron tab to run your program.
