Perl system function

How can I control from what directory the call to the system will be dome

I want the perl script to call other perl script in other dir
some thing like this:

----/home/a.pl------------------
#!/usr/local/bin/perl
system ("cd /home2/rami");
system ("prel B.pl");

B.pl will work only if is call from
dir /home2/rami

Any other idea how a.pl can call b.pl
