Re: [Mark1110] help with scp command

First, add the warnings and strict pragmas and declare your vars, which is done by prefixing them with the 'my' keyword. And don't use CamelCase naming. Use an _ underscore to separate the words.

Next, get rid of those 2 subs. They are a very messy way of formatting the date string. Use the strftime function from the posix module.

Don't use the backticks operator in void context. The backticks are used to capture the output of an external command, which you're not doing. If you don't want to capture the output of the scp command, then use the list form of the system function or one of the IPC::Open modules.

use strict; 
use warnings;
use POSIX qw(strftime);

my $tran_filename = strftime("/broker/user/csp/myTestFile_%Y%m%d.txt", localtime);

my @cmd = qw($tran_filename;

system(@cmd) == 0 or die "system '@cmd' failed: $?;

In this case, I'd probably use the Net::SCP module instead of the system call.
