I have a shell program that 'echo' out status.

I have a perl program that calls that shell program using back-tick
`./myshellprogram.sh"

How do I route shell output to STDOUT (or anything else would be fine).

Ozo,

Excellent.  You had an extra semicolon in there that threw me off for a sec.  So what is the difference between "system" and back-tick?
