Bug awk and execute app

New to Ksh and Perl. Spent days googling and trying things before finding this site. Search this site for solution. What I want is to automate the typing of a command on a HPUX 11 server. The command is particular to Perforce and their excellent tech support suggested I do this in Perl.

Tried Perl but think I need to install a pm for Perforce which the sys admin of the server won't like. So then I tried ksh. I have a long list of branches (stored as a list of single words in a file called p4branch.txt) in Perforce to delete and I got a short test list to just print, but then I get nothing when I try it using the perforce (p4) command. No error. Just nothing.

The command (p4 branch -d -f branchname) works when I type it in a terminal window.
awk '{p4 branch -d -f $1}' p4branch.txt

Thanks for any insight!

WWW::Search::Lycos - class for searching SYNOPSIS
use WWW::Search; my $oSearch = new WWW::Search('Lycos'); my $sQuery = WWW::Search::escape_query("+sushi restaurant +Columbus Ohio"); $oSearch->native_query($sQuery); while (my $oResult = $oSearch->next_result()) { print $oResult->url, " "; } DESCRIPTION
This class is a Lycos specialization of WWW::Search. It handles making and interpreting Lycos-site searches This class exports no public interface; all interaction should be done through WWW::Search objects. NOTES
Warning! As of 2004-01, often returns an error page in place of the third page of results. So it is very difficult to get more than 20 hits for any query! is sometimes slow to respond; but I have not had a problem with the default timeout. does not give the date nor size of the pages at the resulting URLs; therefore change_date() and size() will never have a value. SEE ALSO
To make new back-ends, see WWW::Search. BUGS
