 Proc::Command - backtick that does not use the shell for Perl under Windows

=head1 1.0 SCOPE

This paragraph identifies and provides an overview
of the released files.

=head2 1.1 Identification

This release,
identified in L<3.2|/3.2 Inventory of software contents>,
is a collection of Perl modules that
extend the capabilities of the Perl language.

=head2 1.2 System overview

The "L<Proc::Command|Proc::Command>" module extends the Perl language (the system).

Some Perls under Microsoft windows suffers disabilities over Unix Perls.
One particular disability is a backtick without the console.
Altough the Microsoft console, may be started without a window
(start command with /b option or spawn program call), the Perl
system command on windows usually create a window.
Creating a window causes immense user interface problem since 
it will randomly pop-up and take focus over the current window,
erasing current entries into that window.
Solutions such as "Proc::SafePipe" do not run on Perls for Window.

This module provides an answer by using the "open" command with
a pipe to provide a backtick without a console that will run
under Perls on Microsoft Windows.

=head2 1.3 Document overview.

This document releases Proc::Command version 0.04
providing a description of the inventory, installation
instructions and other information necessary to
utilize and track this release.

=head2 3.3 Changes

Changes are as follows:

=over 4

=item Proc-Command-0.01

Originated

=item Proc-Command-0.02

Added a statement to support the VSM platform

$command = "MCR $command" if $^O eq 'VMS';

=item Proc-Command-0.03

Added a 1 at the end of the code section. Unix Perls very strict on this one.

=item Proc-Command-0.04

Change the test so that test support program modules resides in distribution
directory tlib directory instead of the lib directory. 
Because they are no longer in the lib directory, 
test support files will not be installed as a pre-condition for the 
test of this module.
The test of this module will precede immediately.
The test support files in the tlib directory will vanish after
the installtion.

=back

=head2 3.4 Adaptation data.

This installation requires that the installation site
has the Perl programming language installed.
There are no other additional requirements or tailoring needed of 
configurations files, adaptation data or other software needed for this
installation particular to any installation site.

=head2 3.5 Related documents.

There are no related documents needed for the installation and
test of this release.

=head2 3.6 Installation instructions.

There is still much work needed to ensure the quality 
of this module as follows:

=over 4

=item *

State the functional requirements for each method 
including not only the GO paths but also what to
expect for the NOGO paths

=item *

All the tests are GO path tests. Should add
NOGO tests.

=item *

Add the requirements addressed as I<# R: >
comment to the tests

=item *

Write a program to build a matrix to trace
test step to the requirements and vice versa by
parsing the I<# R: > comments.
Automatically insert the matrix in the
Test::TestUtil POD.
