Default ITP: IPC::System::Simple -- Run commands simply, with detailed diagnostics

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: "Jeremiah C. Foster" <jeremiah@jeremiahfoster.com>


* Package name : libipc-system-simple-perl
Version : 0.16
Upstream Author : Paul Jamieson Fenwick <pjf@cpan.org>
* URL : http://search.cpan.org/~pjf/IPC-System-Simple-0.16/lib/IPC/System/Simple.pm
* License : GPL, Artistic
Programming Lang: Perl
Description : Run commands simply, with detailed diagnostics

Calling Perl's in-built system() function is easy, determining if it
was successful is hard. Let's face it, $? isn't the nicest variable in
the world to play with, and even if you do check it, producing a well-
formatted error string takes a lot of work.

-- System Information:
Debian Release: lenny/sid
APT prefers unstable
APT policy: (500, 'unstable')
Architecture: i386 (i686)

Do you have a description that is suitable for the package also?
