RE: Perl -system command

Dear ilugs,
I am including the snippet of the script here . Also I found that system
call generates following error message

foreach $file (@file_list)

.# create .v and .out files

#check if there is any difference ; store difference in .err file

    print "\n",$dif,"\n";
    $EXEC="diff $current $verif > $dif";

    if(system($EXEC) != 0 ) -
---------------------------------------------------------error here
	print $!;

It generated Interrupted System Call  error message

Kindly help.

	Can you send your code snipet ( lines of code where it is failing ).

	If code is working outside from command line and not working as CGI
	check for the included perl module is in @INC perl appache  path.
