So I am currently on Mac OS... I don't understand why I need to learn linux cmds.. Unless do I need to be using linuxs os? Can I solve this on mac? or should I switch over to linux?

I tried it like cal.pl?cal=&&ls cal.pl?cal=2008&&dir cal.pl;dir and other combinations but it doesn't execute next command, just string arguments...
(I suppose it's not spoiler since it doesn't work)

You're close. if I was you, I wouldn't worry about paying arguments to the Php script manually and use the text box directly. I solved this mission on my phone without doing much url editing. Also, but be careful with the details, it's close to being a spoiler.

I tried what I thought would be the correct, but after reproducing the script locally I see that this results in a "Permission Denied". Am I supposed to circumvent a certain protection measure, or am I targeting the wrong part?


Doesn't require knowledge of perl. Imagine what you enter is entered on to a command line via "$ cal.pl <input>"

What would you put in for <input> that allows you to list files?

Try not to look down on me for this, but I've never run a unix-like in any serious capacity. I tried one time with VMware, but that didn't work out for... reasons I think had to do with my accessibility needs? As I recall, I couldn't get the on-screen keyboard (neither osk.exe on the Windows host machine nor the on-screen keyboard built into the guest operating system) to work with VMware. Can't really run setup commands (e.g. sudo apt <something>) if you can neither type physically nor virtually.
However, after realizing that git (which I DO have installed on my system) includes mingw, a bash shell, I decided to try something in that about an hour after reading your message (after spending most of that our scratching my head). Got it, thanks!
