So I have a perl script (a nagios plugin as a matter of fact) and when I try to execute it via the command line on ubuntu, I get the following error
-bash: !0: event not found .
So naturally I open up the source code and peruse through the source code... things look good. A quick
perl -c check_basicauth.pl
check_basicauth.pl syntax OK
does not help much.
I checked elsewhere on the net and all the posts seem to point towards the fact that the !
character is interpreted by the bash shell; which causes the issue.
I digress... since I am calling it via perl, the shell has nothing to do with a ! in the script. Any thoughts in the hallowed hall????
