flieckster has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
can anyone let me some wisdom as to where to start with this? i have a perl script that finds filenames, in a directory, then calls a URL to get some custom meta data, then uses the system command to call exiftool and the url string with filename to add metadata to the file it called earlier. the script works fine when i run it from terminal, but when i set up the cron it just doesn't seem to work. i feel like its getting caught at system ("exiftool $variables_from_URL);
anyone know where to begin to diagnose?
my cron also looks like this #*/2 * * * * /usr/bin/perl /Volumes/.../exiftool.pl
