a) they didn't want to write anything at all, as they're so used to  
having to do everything through the gui because it's Windoze, they  
got used to it taking 30 mins/n+ hours to do a build and deploy for a  
small website, and for a lot of human intervention along the way.  
They're used to it failing, I just think "why?".
b) if I write it in C# they can interfere more easily :)
c) it's a good excuse to use more perl and try to make the jump to  
'intermediate'! I'm tired of Windows development.

Seems like open() with a pipe is the way. Thanks Nicholas and Andy,  
and Randy for the insight about lists.
