I'm not a Perl guru. Why don't you just do this in /bin/sh?

"My grandfather once told me that there are two kinds of people: 
 Those who do the work and those who take the credit. He told me to 
 try to be in the first group; there was much less competition."

 - Indira Ghandi, the late Prime Minister of India
