OK. I looked at that thread. Using the "exec $0" method to re-invoke the program works (after setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH) - but that just seems a little too funky for me. Is there a "cleaner" way? (For lack of a better way of putting it).

Thanks,
Gary

    Yes. Write a wrapper (shell) script that sets the environment variables before invoking your Perl program.
