This sounds like your #!/usr/bin/perl line may need to be changed. Check where the perl executable is on your new system, and check the path in your scripts to make sure it is the same. On linux/solaris you can use

$ which perl
and if this does not seem to fix the problem, try testing your scripts like this
$ perl -cw myscript.pl
If you get a 'No such file or directory' error while trying that, then Perl is probably not installed on your host's system. :(

[Corion]: ... entering the data
[Corion]: Discipulus: I don't know whether I could really do that, but the init process itself mostly launches other processes, and the whole startup is just following a path of dependencies and making sure they are all running. Which basically is what ...
[Discipulus]: when at work my time is (temporarly) owned by the firm, so i do not care (coworkers whatch movies.. I code Perl)
[Corion]: ... make already does, except for files instead of programs. But maybe with some /proc hackery, that could be eliminated and one could use plain make :-D
[choroba]: systemd just makes is asynchronous
[choroba]: so, make -j
[Corion]: Discipulus: Yeah - but when writing Perl to save time (instead of having fun), it helps to look whether you're actually saving time ;) Why spend 5 minutes doing manually what you can spend three years automating? ;)
[Corion]: choroba: Oh, yeah :-D
