Re: 1.5.11: execvp bug (XP)

Yes, the perl soft link works from the command line. Here's my test case that fails.


print "Success.\n"


#ls -l /usr/bin/perl
lrwxrwxrwx    1 isaacf   Domain U       24 Sep  7 12:44 /usr/bin/perl -> /usr/bin/perl5.8.5.exe

gmake: execvp: perl: Permission denied
gmake: *** [default] Error 127


You may also need to "rm /usr/bin/perl.exe" before you can "ln -s /usr/bin/perl5.8.5.exe /usr/bin/perl".

WFM, sorry.

Can you run perl from the command line?
