calling a perl script?

    Apr 21 2006 | 1:31 am
    hello, i'm not really a coding/progammer person. i'm actually an art student and for my new sound art project i build a patch that at some point i'd like to take and print screen captures. i wrote a perl script that once called will capture the screen and save it, but now i just need to call it from max. is there an object or does anyone have any suggestions how i could do this????

      If you're on OSX, then go to and search for "shell". The shell object by Bill Orcutt does exactly what you want.
