in thread lying about program name

that was probably due to my editing the post to remove some unwanted noise (ie. hostname, username etc.) >> Which fixed it for me. :-) you meant it actually printed out "I am bar (1 2 3)" as expected? (ie. $0 gets 'bar' instead of './foo') . what perl version did you use? i've tried this on all 5.16, 5.18 and 5.22 ... all the same. thanks for looking at it.

    Having only added the semicolon to the bar script. My copies were exactly as you posted them.

    Just for fun. Here's the output from my session:

    devel# ./bar Can't exec "./foo": No such file or directory at ./bar line 3. Unknown 'strict' tag(s) '-1' at ./bar line 3. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at ./bar line 3. devel#
    Ahh, sure enough. No semicolon on line 2 -- gotta love that -w :-)
    devel# ./bar I am ./foo ()
    Looks good. Lets try it as intended
    devel# ./bar 123 I am ./foo (123) devel#
    I think I can safely reply now. :-)

    Evil is good, for without it, Good would have no value
