in reply to perl -e problem

... Another thought just occurred to me. I wonder if perl -e 'sfadfdff' attempts to create a temporary file?

... you may want to check permissions and see if you can create temporary files as your cnow user.

    Tried this:
    cnow> touch /tmp/nothing cnow> ls -al /tmp/nothing -rw-r--r-- 1 cnow sysadmin 0 May 20 15:53 /tmp/nothing

    So I am able to create a tmp file.
      I do not think that is a sufficient test.

      I'm not sure what the solaris function is being used, mkstemp, or something like that.
      It may not even be using the /tmp directory. Perhaps /var/tmp?
