( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Knowing this will probably happen again i would make a script called /usr/bin/perlcron

#!/bin/sh perl -I /some/special/libpath:/another/special/libpath "$@"
and chmod ugo+x it. Then when you enter your command to be run by cron just preface it with /usr/bin/perlcron. ie "/usr/bin/perlcron myscript". This has the advantage that you can also do things like setup a special path when your path is not the path that cron uses. That way you dont need to add any special code to your scripts, it is taken care of in perlcron. And the next time you want to run a perl script by cron you are all set to go,, just use perlcron again to start it

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
