Add code to your script that dumps the environment variables (sorted) to a file. Capture the outputs of successful and unsuccessful runs and diff the files. You'll probably find that the limited environment provided by cron and at is missing one or more environment variables that are required to allow kerberos clients to work correctly on your system. If this is the case, you can create a file that exports the missing variables and source it in the crontab entry.

    The only difference in environment variables that even has a long shot as far as I can tell is the shell. When run from command line it is using 'bash' and when running from 'cron' it is using 'sh'. Does perl even care? I thought perl runs in its own shell. Anyway, sourcing `. /etc/profile` in the script does not help.
      No, perl doesn't care. How did you check permissions?
        ls -l
