Re: perl test fails

Hmmm, don't see how it can have anything to do with the mapping of a networked drive, since the problem started on the NT4 box, at which time the scriptlet was located in /cygdrive/e/cygwin/rnc/try.

Since I wanted to demonstrate that it worked on the Linux box (having tripped over that one originally!) each time I hacked one copy of the script I then had to move to the other machine and duplicate the changes I'd just made. Clearly this was error-prone, so it made sense to just use the copy on the Linux box. On the NT4 it's accessible as /cygdrive/i/rnc/try.

And no, I've never heard of smbntsec. What's it mean/do?

Thanks for this and clearly my scriptlet was broken. I've now tried both alternatives as suggested below. Both work perfectly under Linux. Neither works under NT4.

Linux output:

script is executable

NT4 output:

I damn well am!

To eliminate error further, I'm now running just one copy of the script, since the disk I use on my Linux box is mapped to the i: drive on the NT4 box.

Are you suggesting that you're using a mapped drive from your Linux box?
That may be the problem. Do you have 'smbntsec' set in your CYGWIN environment variable?
