Hello, I am attempting to call a win32 cmd line .exe from Perl. The .exe works in the fashion that it runs until the user puts focus on the cmd line window and presses the letter "q". I can't seem to figure out how to make this happen in perl. For example I start my code the following way, but I can't get the letter que to be passed to the command line. The trick is that the letter isn't supposed to be on the line (c:\q) it is used as a break in the exe. Is it possible to pass an .exe a letter without it being on the command line itself?
need help with win32 cmd line interaction
open(CDB,"|cdb.exe -g -g frsstress.exe /cfgfile stress.xml") or die "Unable to start cbd...";
print "q"; ###this is where I want the program to exe to break via the letter q.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
