Calling other application from perl program

Is there a way to call an external application from a perl program?

In JavaScript I can do something like this:


Code
 var shell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell"); 
shell.Run("Notepad", "7", "TRUE");



Is there a support for such a thing in perl?

Thanks!
