Hi
I have an alias 'push_hermes' defined under /home/www/.bashrc -
alias push_hermes='cd ~/supervision/hermesAdmin; perl  runLandSiteAdminWithAction.pl $*'

While I am trying to use this alias in a perl script -
system ("push_hermes $site_name $project_name push"), the system() command doesn't seem to recognise the push_hermes alias.

As a work around, I discontinued the use of the alias and made it inline in the perl script and it is working now. But I wanted it know, if it is possible to use an alias in the perl script?

Regards
