Please help.
I have been stumbled on this issue, please see below. I am unable to

I need to use perl script but not others and have tried eval, -exec
and other on perl script but failed.
system"cleartool setview -exec \"cleartool describe -fmt 'On %Sd
modified %En and comment:\n %c\n\n' /myproject/vob/myprogram.C\"
my_lag ";
