Re: a question about perl scripts

It's a cron job is what the eDNs group suggests. I will put it in to bin then and see what happens.

I'm not sure about perl scripts, but other script types usually require
some of the following:

Being readable and executable.

You entering the path to the script to run, rather than just the name.
e.g. /home/tim/runme or ./runme

Or putting the script into a ~/bin/ directory that's in your path (then
you don't have to enter the path).

The start of the script having a shebang line saying what's supposed to
run the script.  e.g. #!/usr/bin/perl

All this script does is go up  to everydns.net and make sure that my
web server address always refers to my ip through A records.  Thanks
for the help.

Perhaps a script like that shouldn't be run from the homespace.  You'd
normally have a server running all the time, so it'd be some form of
daemon or cron job.
