Seeking Help with UNIX Shell?

» close window

The Question is:

I want to make use of the command line continuation "-<enter>" from a remote
 shell (rsh) on Unix/Vms system to give a command with paramters larger then
 255 chars.
The actual usage will be to invoke the rsh from a perl script. As a test I use
perl -e 'qx/rsh phoenix -l username sms "one" "two"/'
Now, the question is, how insert a continuation sequence -<enter> between the
 "one" and "two" parameters?

The Answer is :

  The OpenVMS Wizard is not familiar with UNIX command shell syntax
  nor requirements -- the OpenVMS Wizard would encourage contacting
  a UNIX Shell Wizard for assistance.
