If you don't specify the :out adverb, then the output of the program you
are running will be sent to standard output. Immediately when the program
executes. If you specify the :out adverb, output from the program will be
available for capture via the $proc.out method. A similar thing applies
for standard error.
A way to write the captured output to a file would be something like:
my $proc = run 'echo', 'foo bar baz', :out;
.slurp() will read all of the contents of the handle and return a string
(:close closes the file handle after reading everything).
spurt will write a string to a file.
hope this helps,
