Re: Changing HOME for PERL
I think you hit the nail on the head. Apparently yesterday when I
entered the path /usr/bin/perl somewhere, Cygwin decided to create a
perl directory and automatically put profile files into the directory
it created.Well remember, you started out trying to make Perl your home. That was a
foolish thing to try. I don't know why you thought that was something
you wanted to do. You actually set your home directory to /usr/bin/perl
and Cygwin dutifully said, when starting up bash, "The user's home
directory is <X>. Hmmm... that directory doesn't exist! I'll be nice and
create one. Oh and let's put in there some skeleton like start up
I moved the "perl" directory out of /usr/bin and the SheBang
/usr/bin/perl began working.
Great, now do "rm -rf <dir>" where <dir> is the path to where you moved
that Perl directory to. You don't need that any more. That was a mistake.
As for my path statement I will be trimming that down right next.I don't think reply-to-all is what you wanted to use. I'm not sure
however as I don't use a mailing list rather I use a news server
(gmane.org) which translates this mailing list into a Usenet style news
group, which I prefer.
If I emailed anyone directly using this forum that was not my
intention. I always meant to hit -reply-to-all- so sorry if you got
mail directly from me by mistake.
