I have a perl script that compiles a bunch of data...I want to be able to fire off that script as a part of a larger routine..So I need to figure out how to A run the perl script inside the c# app but compiling the data takes about 15 minutes..so I need a way to have the app be able to identify when the script has completed and then continue running the rest of its routine.


The c# app is running as a web service

ProcessStartInfo ps = new ProcessStartInfo("perl.exe", "program.pl args");
ps.UseShellExecute = false;
ps.RedirectStandardOutput = true;
Process p=new Process();
p.Start(ps);
string output = p.StandardOutput.ReadToEnd();
p.WaitForExit();
