in thread How to determine the path to the Perl binary that executed your program?

Actually, it doesn't.

$ perl -le'print $^X' /usr/bin/perl $ cp /usr/bin/perl ~/tmp/ $ ./tmp/perl -le'print $^X' /home/rafl/tmp/perl

Cheers, Flo

    according to perldoc perlvar,
    Depending on the host operating system, 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.
    and indeed,
    osx% perl -le'print $^X' perl
