ActiveState and spawning commands

...and in the same vein as my previous message: Since IM 5.1.1
seemed to work, I tried to roll my own Perl interface, albeit with just
the stuff I need to do. I tried using backtick to run the various IM
commands. For example,
my $id = `identify image.jpg`;
should get me the raw information I need, and then I would simply
parse out what I want.
Unfortunately, $id remains empty. $? is 16384 (0x4000), which
doesn't sound good.
Of course, opening piped output is just as useless. I can't be
running out of memory -- my machine has 128M. Then again, I
*am* using Win98.
