Can a perl script launch another perl script?


I need my perl script (using ActivePerl 5.6.1 on Win98) to launch another perl script to find the "How long since modified" (-M) value of a file and report it back to the main script. Is this possible?

If not, is there a way around the fact that -M references itself to the time a perl script is launched?

Any input is appreciated.


don't panic...

Okay, I found a way around this, though if anyone does have an answer, it'd be cool to know.

I just used the Windows Task Scheduler as earlier suggested to run my script every 15 minutes - works like a charm!
