Re^2: Dealing with incorrect shebang line entries on Windows with Apache

Is that common, though? Installing Perl on a WinNT machine into /usr/bin/perl or whatever *nix path structure? I know there's nothing preventing it, I'm just wondering what the best practice is.

    No idea... all my Perl work has been in *NIX environments. Since you suggested that creating /usr/local/bin/perl locally was an option you had considered, I just assumed that your dev environment was also UNIX-like.

    If you're dealing with multiple OS'es, it might be easiest to have your check-in and check-out scripts insert the correct path for that system, or to have your Makefile.PL do it for you as gellyfish suggested.

    Nope.
    By *default* on unix, there is some version of perl in /usr/bin/perl. Generally a newer version of perl is a /usr/local/bin/perl or /home/zaz/my_perl. On windows, generally active state perl is installed at c:\perl\bin\perl , but cygwin installs perl at c:\cygwin\usr\bin\perl, which, if you are using cygwin's apache, you would call perl by /usr/bin/perl . If you use Oracle, you can use the oracle version of perl (not really recommended) at a path (similar to) /u01/oracle/some/version/export/bin/perl .
    As far as development systems being different than production systems, in general, they almost are *always* different. Generally, older systems are used as development boxes, since they don't need the speed of production servers. (Also accept *slower* boxes, since there are times when you can't control the production environment, especially when you don't have root on the box.)
    BTW. 300th post. :-)
