On all servers, this path is correct:
#!/usr/bin/perl

I see you want to help and think that is great, unfortunately that statement is off.
#!/usr/bin/perl would be a nice passpartout to find perl on all unixish computers,
but alas you cannot rely on it.

    Happy-the-monk, huck was quoting (hence the URL and italics) from the "Incorrect Path to PERL" section of the linked hostgator support page. Given that hostgator claims all their servers use that specific perl path, I believe bennierounder could rely on that fact on the hostgator-based website being discussed in this thread. In general, you cannot rely on that, but on hostgator, you should be able to (until they change their setup and documentation).

      To be fair, I was very close to posting something very similar as Happy-the-monk did, until I went to the site and read through it.

      Thank you and stevieb for clarifying this.
