( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

This is an old thread, but I've often had reason to refer back to it. Hopefully someone will also find the following useful.

Tye's solution works perfectly. It seems to be the best solution for cron jobs on a server with a diverse environment. The only problem is the the BEGIN block sort of breaks the use of perl -c and perl -d. If I understand correctly, it's because those options sort of wrap the existing code in code that will just compile or debug the existing code.

The following works, but only if the environment variables don't need to be set before the modules are loaded. Naturally, on a Windows system you will need to find an alternative method of determining an interactive shell...

my $interactive = TRUE if ( ! system( 'tty -s' ) / 256 ); unless ($interactive) { unless ( $ENV{BEGIN_BLOCK} ) { $ENV{"ORACLE_HOME"} = '/opt/oracle/product/9.2.0'; $ENV{"LD_LIBRARY_PATH"} = '/opt/oracle/product/9.2.0/lib'; $ENV{BEGIN_BLOCK} = 1; exec 'env',$0,@ARGV; } }

Credit for this goes to one of my (non-perlmonk) co-workers. I'm just taking the credit :D I've been using a variation of Tye's code until now.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
