System::Sub provides a Perl sub
that wraps the call to an external program.
The return value is line(s) dependending on context ("wantarray").
This may be what you need if you want to run external commands
as easily as from a Unix shell script
but with a perl-ish feel (contextual output).
So this is not a universal module
for running external programs (like IPC::Run)
but instead a simpler interface
for a common style of external programs.
