How do I get Perl to report the remaining disk space on my web site.  I want my perl script to email me back this free disk space.  Also what about free memory?

I know in C I used special commands for getting free disk space and free amount of memory (free()).

Thanks.

Need to know what operating system your web site is running on. Unix or NT for example?

I am making the assumption that you are using a Unix system of
dsome sort. but even if that is wrong, the following program should give you enough of an idea so that you can substitute where necessary.

You can execute system commands in Perl with the command
system("command");

so system("cp abc def");
will copy file abc to file def in Unix

anyway here's how it works ....

#!/usr/bin/perl

# nb you may have a different location for your perl interpreter
# set line 1 to point to wherever it is.

# execute standard Unix command "df" to report disk space and
# usage and redirect output to the file called space.out
# alternatively if you have compiled C program that reports
# on disk statistics then you could call that and redirect
# its output to the file space.out

system("df > space.out");

#at this point you should call a script to email you the
#contents of space.out
