I think the error must be coming from the shell invoking perl, not perl itself. The error would not be due to setting environment variables, but what is passed to $PERL_BIN/perl.

To confirm ...

  • insert set -x just before the perl invocation line (to see the actual invocation; may want to set +x just after the perl line to avoid clutter in case perl call succeeds);
  • replace $PERL_BIN/perl with echo ("argument list too long" message would still be produced);
  • reduce the number of things stuffed in $@ (error message would enventually go away when "enough" -- consult your shell|kernel documentation|source -- of the arguments have been stripped away).

Thanks (rest of the posters) for the clue that environment is also part of the space calculation, which I had outright dismissed in my reply.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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.
