Hi, I use a workflow product called Enfocus Switch and this allows me to execute commands that allow me to run perl directly within the application. This is great because I can get perl to do complex alterations to documents that are running through the workflow. However Switch does not like to use of the greater than symbol ">" so this:
Outputting from a terminal invocation
perl -e "print 'hello world'" > "/Users/user/test_out.txt"
cannot be used. Do you know of a way of replacing the > so that I can still output a file? (BTW I have tried invoking tee: perl -e "print 'hello world'" | tee "/Users/richardcrisp/test_out.txt" but Switch doesn't like "|" either!). Many other applications (cpdf, qrencode, etc) do not use > but instead use -o. I know that this command is used for something else in perl but was hoping there'd be something similar.
Thanks for you help!
