Here is a piece of code for you:
Don't forget to $ chmod 755 /path/to/my/script/above.pl so it can run. First run it as a "batch" job
which will be the same environment as a cronjob would be. Then run it from the command line:
then check the differences:
and that should help you rule some stuff out.
Typically the difference between command line and cron has to do with permissions or environment being different. It ain't rocket science.
