There is a perl script which takes two command line parameters as input. This script (myscript.pl) has been encrypted using GnuPG tool (i.e. pgp) resulting myscript.pl.asc. When this perl script is decrypted as follows:
gpg --no-tty -q -d --passphrase=key myscript.pl.asc
it prints the perl script on the console. Now instead of storing the result in another file and then executing it by perl, I need to execute the same through pipe as follows:
gpg --no-tty -q -d --passphrase=key myscript.pl.asc | perl
It works fine if the script does not take any command line arguments. But as the script does need two command line arguments, I need help from experts for any perl command switches using which I can pass the arguments to the scripts something like as follows the way it is done for bash scripts:
gpg --no-tty -q -d --passphrase=key add2numbers.sh.asc | bash -s 23 40
where add2numbers.sh.asc is the encrypted file for the bash script, add2numbers.sh which takes 2 arguments to add them. "-s" is the switch to the bash script to tell that 23 and 40 are command line arguments.
In a simple way, how to execute the following line for a perl code:
cat add2numbers.pl | perl -xxxx 12 34
where "-xxxx" switch is unknown. Is it possible to do so?
There are lot of perl scripts which take command line arguments. So I don't want to change the scripts
just to read command line arguments differently. Perl scripts should not be changed as long as possible.
PLEASE HELP ME IN THIS REGARDS.
THANKS IN ADVANCE.
