    Well, I found the problem and almost have a solution worked out.

    It appears there's some issues between the version of ActivePerl being implemented on the NFS that we use and data being pulled from the DB. When I made a separate Perl script to pull from the DB and ran it using a fresh Perl install, things worked fine.

    Unfortunately, a lot of other things are dependent on the version of Perl on the NFS. Not a huge issue, just going to leave the DB work in a separate Perl script and call it from a different version of Perl.

    That being said, running into a small problem with passing arguments from the initial Perl script to the now separated one. Code below:

    Initial Perl:

    system('/usr/bin/perl /home/ $source_id $OutputXMLDir');
    Perl script that is being called:
    my $PassedSource = $ARGV[0]; my $FinalDir = $ARGV[1];

    Unfortunately, $PassedSource and $FinalDir are both ending up as null when the program runs. Am I just passing the 2 arguments incorrectly?

    Thanks again for all the help. You've been wonderful.

      Single quotes do not interpolate variables.

        D'oh. It's been a long day, thanks. Haha all is working fine now. Appreciated.

      Thank you ev0lution for the feedback. It's nice to hear that you worked it out.

      I hope that the hint from choroba helped to fix the last remaining issue.

      Best regards, Karl

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
