#!perl [Jul. 3rd, 2001|03:18 am]

[music |R.E.M. - Diminished]

Is there any reason why we're using #!/usr/bin/perl instead of #!perl ?

In the typical case where the only Perl is in /usr/bin, it doesn't matter; but if Perl is in a different directory, or if there are multiple Perls and PATH has been customized to put another directory before /usr/bin, #!perl will do the right thing and #!/usr/bin/perl won't.

Update: This was dumb. Forget I suggested it.
