Okay, here's the idea (I don't know if this is possible but hey, what the heck):

I'm running Apache on Windows XP but my site is hosted on a machine running Linux. In order for my scripts to work on my XP box, my shebang line looks like:


However, when I post my scripts to the host machine, the shebang line needs to be:


My question is: Is there a way to mimic/alias/redirect/*whatever* a *nix path to a user-defined Windows path? That way I could set up my machine to handle the *nix-based shebang line...sorta like:

"/usr/bin/perl = c:/Perl/bin/perl"

I'm getting tired of switching shebang lines around all the time in my scripts between here (my pc) and there (host pc).
