in reply to Specifying a shell for use with Backticks
I am not really a power perl user but mostly shell user.
But I think the following idea will work.
Assuming that your "myscript" is indeed a cshell script
#! /bin/csh -f
as the first line in that file. Also Try reading
"UNIX power Tools by Jerry Peek, Tom O'Reilly,
Chapter 47 "Shell Programming for ..."
47.02 - 47.05 the story of #! to get good handle on
what shell get's used when you invoke a script.
