Wow - I guess you learn something new each day.

Beside being able to swear that I read somewhere that cwd is automaticly set to location where script is running. I never had an problem with that in the past ~ 5 years of working with Perl.

Here is the source Changing the Working Directory which I found out yesterday - but I got it from other places in the past ...


During development and testing I used -T option. First thought was that it's the thing causing the problem on the server - obviosly it isn't.

Have you tried freelancing? Check out Scriptlance - I work there. For more info about Scriptlance and freelancing in general check out my home node.

    Huh. that page is wrong. :-) At least it doesn't work like that if you run a script from the command line / shell script. Running from a shell does not change the cwd, because that would defeat the point of having a cwd in the first place.

    Some other environments do set the cwd; usually to the scrip's install dir, but that's normally because there isn't a logical cwd to begin with (i.e. in a CGI environment, or on windows, if you start a script by clicking on its icon)
