in thread Perl thinks it's the shell!

Thanks so much. I thought I was going NUTS!

In correction to my original post (since updated) it does work with callperl.exe but originally it was

!#/c/apps/pp3.exe
and that didn't work , which added to my confusion(I should have noticed this when posting). Seeing this, I then actually started adding and deleting letters from the shebang line and got what seemed to be random results.
!#/c/apps/callperl.exe and !#/c/apps/callperllllll.exe
worked but
!#/c/apps/callpe.exe
failed

I didn't happen to think that it might be to do with the word perl

Thanks again for the quick response, You get good service here!!!

This is the second time I have come across mysterious (yes, should have read the docs) perl (related - though not perls fault) problems on windows. At first callperl.exe kept stealing spaces from my command line arguments until I realised that you need to double quote all command line parameters containing spaces. This is important for system and exec in c which call CreateProcess on windows platforms.

    Fellow misterw
    This is a classical. :-) Just do like the emacs users do:

    #!/c/apps/pp3.exe # -*- perl -*-

    This solves your problem, I guess. This solved my problems, when I was dealing with this kind'o'stuff.

    May the gods bless your work.

      Yes, a typo in my post, nothing to do with the problem at hand
