perl script system() only execute one command over ssh


Code:
#!/usr/bin/perl 

$acc = "root";
$ips=$ARGV[0];                    ## this holds the command needs to run on remote host.
@ipary= split(/\,/,$ips);       ## split if there are more then one host
for $ipary(@ipary){

print ("\n");
print "connecting ......$ipary \n";


system("ssh root\@$ipary  $ARGV[1]");    ## execute ssh command

}
Problem here is if I do
Code:
./program.pl   10.10.10.10   "pwd   && ls "
It execute pwd on remote host BUT it execute ls on local host.
I have done same with shell script in a different environment(some where else) and it worked

AND
Now
I have used normal shell
as
Code:
ssh root@10.10.10.10  "pwd &&  ls"
Above command execute both command on remote host.


Thanks

Try using single quotes around your remote command

For example:

Code:
./program.pl 10.10.10.10 'pwd && ls'

system("ssh root\@$ipary \'$ARGV[1]\'"); ## execute ssh command

That worked!
