in reply to perlApp --gui and chdir

Sounds like it maybe a perlApp issue. If so, you might find more help at ActiveState's user forums.

Doing a quick search of their forums for "perlapp -gui", I found this which might have the solution to your problem.

    i am trying to get a logfile to write in a specific location no matter where i run the compiled .exe from so if i do

    my $file = pathtofile;

    When I open a output file handler on the output file i want the data to be written to the path but everytime no matter what i try this is not the case it will write the log file to where ever i run the .exe from

    Thanks for the response

      If you're using an absolute path, what has chdir got to do with it?

      I'll bet you're not doing any error checking either, open can fail you know

        all works fine as a .pl so error checking has nothing to do with this
