If I'm understanding what you are saying, you have a whole bunch of perl scripts, and you need to change one line (#!/usr/bin/perl??) to #!/usr/local/bin/perl on all of the perl files in a dir? If that is the case technically you could write a perl script to do it. It wouldn't take long, or much to hack one out. Is my understanding correct?
Yes, I am a criminal.
My crime is that of defyance.

I had some thoughts about this very subject posted to a
We spend a lot of effort with modules, verifying that all
files are present, they work, etc. before putting them live.
What about their poor relations, the scripts? A script
writer could implement tests in an equivalent of make test.
The install step could copy to cgi-bin or wherever the
script needs to go, changing the shebang line in the process,
having worked out where perl lives.
Could Extutils::MakeMaker be used to do this, or is this
too hard-coded for modules and h2xs?
