I'm not Perl expert so I need help to read this script. Is someone can tell me line by what it does?:


my $javab = "/apps/App/Sterling/jdk/bin/java";
$wmsproc = "ps -ef |egrep -v 'grep|perl' | grep $javab | grep $search |";

open(PROCESS,$wmsproc) || die "Unable read pipe\n";
while ($line = <PROCESS>) {
                     $pid = substr($line,9,5);
                     print "Message.1: Process Java $search found pid is $pid \n";
                     print "Statistic.1: $pid\n";
                     print "Message.2: Process Java $search found  $line \n";
                     print "Statistic.2: $line\n";
                     exit 0;
print "Statistic: 0\n";
exit 1;
