in thread path to perl interpreter

Hi. My nick is rnahi, not "Mhai."

You are referring to something that looks like copyrighted material with wrong information.

Have a look at the official docs .

$^X
The name used to execute the current copy of Perl, from C's  argv[0] .
Depending on the host operating system, the value of $^X may be a relative or absolute pathname of the perl program file, or may be the string used to invoke perl but not the pathname of the perl program file. Also, most operating systems permit invoking programs that are not in the PATH environment variable, so there is no guarantee that the value of $^X is in PATH.

    In that case, wheel out the heavy artillery.

    use Config; my $perl = $Config{perlpath}; $perl .= $Config{_exe} if $^O ne 'VMS' and $perl !~ /$Config{_exe}$/i; print "executable is $perl\n";
