Ok, actually the system call is run under Acme::Spork.
Could it be the cause?
Easiest, securest way to find if Acme::Spork (never heard of it) is the cause: take it out of the equation and test it!
my $uemail = 'firstname.lastname@example.org';
system("perl mycode.pl -email \"$uemail\"") or die "Well, probably NOT
+ a spork problem";
or better yet, comment the spork line of your code and do a simple system call as above. Either way will tell you if this module is or is not the cause of your problem.
My apologies to HuckinFappy
. I ended up answering the same thing...</UPDATE>
Just my two cents.
