There is no /usr/local/bin/perl on infohost. I had the same issue with /usr/local/bin/python.   Joel, would you mind adding a soft link from /usr/local/bin/perl to /usr/bin/perl, so our users don't have to change their scripts?

After speaking with Mike about this, we've decided to put symbolic links in /usr/local/bin.

However, I'd like to remind everybody that this is non-standard and may or may not work on machines other than infohost.   If you are going to be writing a proper python (or perl) script, use the following:


#!/usr/bin/python

or even better


#!/usr/bin/env python

Thanks,
