in thread shebang problem on openSUSE


See perlrun , when  #!/usr/bin/env perl -l doesn't work use

#!/bin/sh #! -*-perl-*- eval 'exec perl -x -wS $0 ${1+"$@"}' if 0;

Also see which says

Splitting arguments A very few systems deliver only the first argument, some systems split + up the arguments like a shell to fill up argv[], most systems deliver all arguments as a single string. See the table b +elow. I noticed that for Linux (delivering all arguments as one strin +g), a patch to split up was suggested on the Linux kernel mailing list (de +ad link, try this page,, followed by a discussion of som +e portability issues.

    ++ Thanks beech, that answers my question and resolves the issue.

    The table showing different behaviours was particularly helpful. It would appear that I have mostly been using OSes that do parse all arguments separately; for instance, I've had Mac OS X at home for the last eight years and that's what I would have used, almost exclusively, for scripts I've posted on this site. I was quite unaware that wasn't the normal case: hence my surprise at the behaviour on this borrowed laptop.
