in thread path to perl interpreter

kprasanna_79,

I'm sorry, but did you even try it? Given how easy/fast it is to try what you're about to post, I'd highly suggest it - you seem to be very prone to confidently posting completely wrong information, which suggests to me that you need to find a new source of information. May I recommend the perl interpreter itself?

$ uname -a HP-UX dessert B.11.11 U 9000/800 1131039648 unlimited-user license $ cat t.pl #! /usr/bin/perl print $^X,"\n"; $ ./t.pl /usr/bin/perl

Name a platform where this works the way you say it does. I probably have access to it and will test it out. AIX (4 or 5), Sun (2.6 through 2.10), HP (11i, 11.23), HP/ia64 (11.23), Linux on ia32, ia64, amd64, ppc64, s390. Windows on ia32, ia64, or amd64 (although the latter two will take me a couple hours to get, I will call you on it). You pick. You even get to write the script if you want.

    You are both right. Under HP-UX it depends on the command used to start the script. If you start it with the full path, you will get the full path. If you start it with a relative value, you will get a relative value. That also goes for the shebang line.

    $ /usr/contrib/bin/perl -e 'print $^X, "\n"' /usr/contrib/bin/perl $ perl -e 'print $^X, "\n"' perl $ uname -a HP-UX noway B.11.00 A 9000/800 xxxxxxxx two-user license $ perl -e 'print $^O, "\n"' hpux
