run a program and capture stdout and completion status?

I'm looking for a snippet or simple module that run an external command and capture the completion status and stdout. I found some partial snippets in the camel book, but I'd really prefer something a bit more tested/complete. This is my note to dive into CPAN. Any suggestions are appreciated.

(re-)learning perl

I've used perl (but not regularly) for over 10 years now. Lately I've been thinking about re-learning perl, not only for me but also for teaching my son.

These are resources I think I might use.
