    Perl?

    Jason L-S Level 1

      Is it possible to use ExtendScripts to run a Perl script in Unix?

       

      We use Perl to generate .mif files. So with an ExtendScript, I'd like to run the Perl script, and then get the resulting .mif file into the active FrameMaker document.

       

      Thanks,

          Why don't you just use extendscript to generate the MIF files directly? Sounds like it would  be faster then having to call a separate script and then have that script send output back to the extenscript.

            It's part of the workflow. The Perl script cannot be re-built in ExtendScript. I just need to know if ExtendScripts can interface with Unix to kick off a Perl script. Is that possible?
