perl: Argument list too longby sjhalani (Initiate)

sjhalani has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
we have a shell script from which we invove the perl i.e
we set a lot of environment variables here and then call perl script finally as :$PERL_BIN/perl a.pl "$@" The perl script has the following first line i.e
But when we invoke it we get the errora.sh bin/perl: Argument list too long
The arguments we are passing are way within the limits i.e not more than 400 characters then why is the perl complaining on the argument list ? This is running on Linux box.
Is there some limit on the number of environment variables we can set ?
