in thread Encoding issue from DBI to string

Well, I found the problem and almost have a solution worked out.

It appears there's some issues between the version of ActivePerl being implemented on the NFS that we use and data being pulled from the DB. When I made a separate Perl script to pull from the DB and ran it using a fresh Perl install, things worked fine.

Unfortunately, a lot of other things are dependent on the version of Perl on the NFS. Not a huge issue, just going to leave the DB work in a separate Perl script and call it from a different version of Perl.

That being said, running into a small problem with passing arguments from the initial Perl script to the now separated one. Code below:

Initial Perl:

system('/usr/bin/perl /home/ $source_id $OutputXMLDir');
Perl script that is being called:
my $PassedSource = $ARGV[0]; my $FinalDir = $ARGV[1];

Unfortunately, $PassedSource and $FinalDir are both ending up as null when the program runs. Am I just passing the 2 arguments incorrectly?

Thanks again for all the help. You've been wonderful.

    Single quotes do not interpolate variables.

    Thank you ev0lution for the feedback. It's nice to hear that you worked it out.

    I hope that the hint from choroba helped to fix the last remaining issue.

    Best regards, Karl

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
