What kind of editor did you use to edit and save the script? If it was not saved in 'unix' format I have seen it cause problems. There is a difference between how unix and windows handle line feeds and it can cause all kinds of strange errors.

What version of perl are you using? It should be version 5.

|Yes, that was the problem. Perl4 and 5 are available and I was pointing the script to 4.|
