You can't use shell functions (such as pipe) with the list-form
invocation of system().

Easiest option (though it's vulnerable to shellmetas showing up in
filenames) is probably to do it all in one string: set $cmd instead of
@cmd and system($cmd).

Slightly harder but more secure option would be to do it in two stages
using a tmpfile - or to build your own pipework to join the two
