PERL script automating software installation/ accepting license agreement.


Good Day,

Is it possible to automate software installation with perl?

Like can't I get perl to accept license agreement?

Thanks

Yes, you can.

If you'd like more detailed answers, a more detailed question, with some detailed information would be helpful.

I m not at work so all I could tell is we have to automate software installations.
When I looked at procedure every thing looked doable including creating dir., changing permissions, creating user etc.

But then I also saw "accept licence agreement" I thought we couldn't automate installation since some has to be present to check/say yes to licence agreement.

Thanks.

Not at all. You still don't say what language you'd like to do this in, or give any more details, but if you're doing this in a bash shell script, look at the "expect" command.
