in reply to perl stdout and backtick execute

Just to clarify ... you are executing this program from the command-line, as a logged-on user, and not as “a CGI (web...) request ...?   Even though you “just happened to” move it to ... cgi_bin?   You’re not trying to run this script from a web-page, are you?   You’re not trying to diagnose a problem where Apache/CGI won’t run this program, are you?

    I am executing this script ( from the command-line as low-level user xyz. The script is not owned by xyz; it is owned by user abc. Currently I am trying to prove that the pieces operate correctly together. Ultimately, the script will by executed from a web-page via Apache/CGI, hence it does a database inquiry (pread), and will return the output to the browser.
