in reply to perl script in nohup running from crontab

Are you trying to run this as root? a regular user or a user with elevated permissions? If you are running as root. I would strongly advise against doing that. Instead have a user with the appropriate permission levels to do the task and nothing more. Running cron jobs as root could be problematic at best (a security issue at worst).

[marto]: what a mess
[karlgoethebier]: perhaps i need a zerial?
[Corion]: marto: Heh - I think that's a nice contractual trap, "you will not use other gods/engines besides ours" ;)
[Corion]: But if the base intention was to have CIG as "co-developers" who (have to) contribute changes back to the mainline, it makes sense to have them use no other engine
[marto]: yes, I hear that development house has been on its last legs for a couple of years now
[Corion]: Is anybody aware of what makes Android Oreo better than Android Nougat? I'm not sure if the architectural changes (etc) are there already that make upgrading an Oreo-kernel phone to a newer Android userland (Lineage OS) version feasible
[Corion]: Yeah, CryTek got blindsided (or whatever) by Unity and Unreal Engine being zero cost, and the CryTek documentation being bad/nonexistent I think
[Corion]: "zero monetary cost", because of course, it's gratis only if your time has no value :)
