why the codes can not be executed? Can't Post

hello, i have a segment of code as followed:
#path for rlog command
$CMD{rlog} = 'D:/project/programs/rcs';
if (defined($tag)) {
if (!open($fh, "-|")) { #TRUE
open(STDERR, '>/dev/null') ;
# execute rlog comand for a list of the files
exec($CMD{rlog}, @files) or exit -1;
} else {

I found that the code after this segment can not be executed at all. even a print operation can get nothing displyed. I don't know why. Seems the current task executed by this segment can not exit so that the program can not continue. but i indeed put "exit" there.
what is wrong with code?
pls help! thanks alot

You almost certainly don't want "exec". You probably want "system" instead. You should read the docs on these two functions.
