And this is another reason for the Grammar solution: it lets you do just what is needed, in a constrained environment so you don't have any risk (unless you do something questionable in the Grammar, but then that's on you.) On Mon, Jul 17, 2017 at 6:15 AM, Brent Laabs wrote:

Hi All, This runs: my $proc = run('zip', '-j', "$ZipLog", "$CimLog", "$LogFile", "$DiagDir/BlankFile.txt", :out); And this also works (bash) zip -j eraseme.zip /opt/xxx/yyy/zzz/diags/* But this does not: my $proc = run('zip', '-j', "$ZipLog", "$CimLog", "$LogFile", "$DiagDir/*", :out);
