    I have done a script, but it is based on shell script, and i want to convert it to perl. I am very new to perl.

    This is my shell script

    #!/bin/bash

    echo -n "Enter your name : "
    read username
    echo -n "Enter your password : "
    read password

    pass=$(perl -e 'print crypt($ARGV[0], "password")' $password)
    useradd -m -p $pass $username

    And i want to change it to perl script

    This is how i change it, but it does not work

    #!/usr/bin/perl

    print "Enter your name : \n";
    $username = <STDIN>;
    print "Enter your password : \n";
    $password = <STDIN>;

    $pass=$('print crypt($ARGV[0], "password")' $password)
    system("useradd -m -p $pass $username");

    PLease help me.
