I need to know how to do these built-in unix commands line and put it in a perl script-

setshot cuetest/wrappers
   shot
   cd wrappers_cmp_v3/
   ls
   cd 2kfa_lg8/
   netscape -remote "openUrl(http://vfo-server/vfo/jsp/VfoSubmit.jsp?show=${SHOW}&shot=${SHOT})"
    seqls
     seqls *.rla *.cin
   echo $SHOW
   echo $SHOT
   perl -e 'print "$ENV{SHOW} $ENV{SHOT}";'
   pwd   --- # this should print the current directory  example - /net/vol01/shot/curtest.../2fa
and I need to strip out "net/vol01/"
so that
$FILE = /shot/cuetest/wrappers/pix/out/wrappers-2/2fa


So that finally the script looks like this-
#file bla.pl

#!/usr/local/bin/perl

use strict;

## get all the above unix commands ie ..show, shot, filespec

## and then does this...
if ( 0 != system( "netscape -remote 'openUrl(http://vfo-server/vfo/jsp/VfoSubmit.jsp?show=$ENV{SHOW}&shot=$ENV{SHOT}&owner=$ENV{owner}&file=/whatever )' 2> /dev/null" ) ) {

    print "Netscape not running, launching fresh browser\n";

    system( "netscape 'http://vfo-server/vfo/jsp/VfoSubmit.jsp?show=$ENV{SHOW}&shot=$ENV{SHOT}&owner=$ENV{owner}&file=/whatever' 2> /dev/null" );

}

Any suggestions...

Thanks

To execute shell command you can use different ways:

# the easiest way, $output will contain command line output
$output = `command`;

# you can use system(), it returns exit code returned by UNIX programm

$code = system("commands");
