in reply to system call not working

"The path to the program is also definately in my .bashrc file"? What do you mean? And more to the point, why should that matter? After all, .bashrc is only sourced for interactive shells, and even if your system() call were using a shell, it wouldn't be an interactive one.

    But if you always run your Perl script from an interactive shell, then it inherits those environment variables.
      You're assuming that environment variables are involved. Maybe it's a shell alias.
