Apologies if this question is already answered in the doc.
How do I call a
shell script from within ruby code? I have a lot of
existing scripts that
are written in perl and I鈥檇 like to call them from a ruby
framework. I
haven鈥檛 found anything in the doc about this, maybe I
missed something?

A simple way is

system(鈥/some/where/foo.sh鈥)
