Re: activestate perl on cygwin

I agree completely. This is for personal use.
What does that matter? It's still short sited.
Although this is thorough off topic, perhaps you can explain it better to me as I don't use ActiveState therefore I don't see what you are claiming. Exactly which "full path" is expanded to "what" and passed to (guess) ActiveState Perl interpreter as, again, what? Is it $0 that you speak of that may be a Cygwin path? I'm confused however if it is $0 then why couldn't that also be handled in the Perl script?
The error is as follows:

[~] $
Can't open perl script "/home/kcella/bin/": No such file or

[~] $ ls -l /home/kcella/bin/
-rwxr-xr-x 1 kcella None 651 Jan 12 07:33 /home/kcella/bin/
And what does #! look like? (And I'll ask for completion's sake as you never seems to be thorough nor accurate in your answers), what does ls <portion after #! in your script> return? Oh and what is PATH set to? And while we're at it, what is the exact path of the program you wanted to be executed (i.e. C:\Perl\bin\perl.exe?).
