I agree completely. This is for personal use.
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?).
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:
[~] $ myscript.pl
Can't open perl script "/home/kcella/bin/myscript.pl": No such file or
[~] $ ls -l /home/kcella/bin/myscript.pl
-rwxr-xr-x 1 kcella None 651 Jan 12 07:33 /home/kcella/bin/myscript.pl
