In UNIX, I have a process that I want to run using nohup. However, this process will at some point wait at a prompt where I have to enter
no for it to continue. So far, in UNIX I have been doing the following:
nohup myprocess <<EOF y EOF
So I start the process 'myprocess' using nohup and pipe in a file with 'y' then close the file. The lines above are effectively three separate commands - i.e. I hit enter on the first line in UNIX, then I get a prompt where I enter 'y' and then press enter to then finally type 'EOF' and hit return again. So this works perfectly, but my problem is below.
I want to now execute this in Perl, but I am not sure how I can execute this command, as it is over three lines. I don't know if the following will work:
my $startprocess = `nohup myprocess <<EOF & y EOF `
