Re: Changing HOME for PERL
Before I go and end this thread can you tell me if the Perl.exe I have
in Cygwin looks correct?This is odd. You do know that Unix, thus Cygwin, implements a case
sensitive file system (in most cases) and that Perl.exe is not the same
as perl.exe. I've never seen a Perl.exe in Cygwin and alas I have no
more Windows machines at home to test on.
I can cd /usr/bin and the Perl there is:
$ ls -la Perl.exe
-rwxrwxrw-+ 1 dextem mkgroup-l-d 34304 Jul 19 2007 Perl.exe
I am not seeing the 'x' for execute however and maybe this is the issue?
Given the above I do see an "x" - actually two of them - one for owner
and one for group. You are the owner (dextem) so you have execute
permissions. (BTW: the mkgroup thing is trying to tell you to run
mkgroup > /etc/group).
Aside from reporting your particulars as described in
http://cygwin.com/problems.html, it would be interesting to show the
output of "which perl" and try a "perl -de 1" to start up Perl in it's
debugger from the command line. If that works then the shebang line
should work. If the shebang line is not working then I would thing "perl
-de 1" would also not work and may output enlightening stuff.

Now they show you how detergents take out bloodstains. I think if you've
got a T-shirt with a bloodstains all over it, maybe laundry isn't your
biggest problem. Maybe you should get rid of the body before you do the
