in reply to Re^4: path to perl interpreter
in thread path to perl interpreter

the value of $^X may be a relative or absolute pathname of the perl program file, or may be the string used to invoke perl but not the pathname of the perl program file.

In that case, wheel out the heavy artillery.

use Config; my $perl = $Config{perlpath}; $perl .= $Config{_exe} if $^O ne 'VMS' and $perl !~ /$Config{_exe}$/i; print "executable is $perl\n";
