As you would any other variable assignment:
Code:
my $directory_path  =  "/path/to/file";

or
Code:
my $directory_path  =  '/path/to/file';

I have argument only

no
here I don't have directory path actually but I have argument like

ex:
Code:
system("sh abc.sh $Calibre_Output")

Calibre_Output have the directory path

Thanks

Just set the value of your variable to value you want it to be before calling the shell script:
Code:
my $Calibre_Output  =  '/path/to/file';
system("sh abc.sh $Calibre_Output")
