Thanks, Eric for taking a look at this.

I had earlier tried that, when I do this:

my $trick_my_box_script; my $base_path = '/home/hesco/sandbox/EC2'; my $build_script = ''; open('USER_DATA','<',"$base_path/$build_script") or die "Unable to ope +n $base_path/$build_script: $! \n"; while(<USER_DATA>){ $trick_my_box_script .= $_; } close(USER_DATA); my $user_data = encode_base64($trick_my_box_script);
Then I get errors which look like this:

hesco@marcus8:~/sandbox/EC2$ time perl $VAR1 = bless( { 'errors' => [ bless( { 'message' => '500 read failed: Connection reset by peer', 'code' => 'HTTP POST FAILURE' }, 'Net::Amazon::EC2::Error' ) ], 'request_id' => 'N/A' }, 'Net::Amazon::EC2::Errors' );
That shell script is only 7.2k, well within the 16k limit. Any idea why it would be rejected like this?

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:

  • 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.
