in reply to running /bin/sh perl

G'day aknipp,

"I thought something like bash `/usr/bin/iwgethome`/iw-perl/bin/iwperl perlfile - which looks promising, but I get an error like this:

iwperl: cannot execute binary file

Which tells me it is picking up the 1st parameter as the script name, but in this case the 1st parameter is perl not the script."

Actually, that tells me that perlfile is a binary file which iwperl cannot execute. (What happened to

I don't have any problem doing (similar to) what you have there if I specify a script:

$ cat print "Hello, world!\n"; $ which perl /Users/ken/perl5/perlbrew/perls/perl-5.14.2_WITH_THREADS/bin/perl $ `echo $HOME`/perl5/perlbrew/perls/perl-5.14.2_WITH_THREADS/bin/perl Hello, world!

[marto]: I doubt it even exists as a building site :P
[ambrus]: Corion: does building airports "somewhat outside of" a city ever work? cities always grow around the airport quickly, because it's practical to be close to it, and after that, people start to complain that the airplanes land so close to their house and sh
[ambrus]: ould keep down the noise
