in reply to How to set (environment) variables for the script

This gave me the cleanest solution, I guess: perldoc perlrun

My script starts now like this:

#!/bin/sh mydir=`dirname $0` . $mydir/ exec perl -x $0 "$@" #!perl use strict; use warnings; # and so on...

Thanks to all who replied!

Update: In reply to Arge1 below and because I noticed today That I myself needed parameters to my script.

I appended "$@" to my exec above. This will append all parameters, individually quoted, to the exec command for my perl script to handle them.
