I am on Solaris 2.5.1 . It would be better I guess to install sybperl and perl so that they don't need the LD_LIBRARY_PATH rather than writing wrapper scripts all over the place. Can U show me how ?? 

Thanks and regards
Sandesh

I read in the Sybperl FAQ that it wasn't possible to set the environment from within the script and that I would need to have a 'wrapper' script to set the environment (most notably LD_LIBRARY_PATH). So am I to infer that all CGI scripts called from my HTML page would need to be either Bourne or C or Korn shell scripts that would set the environment and then invoke the appropriate Sybperl script ??

Yes you are correct.

However - what environment are you on? What OS/hardware platform?

It is usually possible to install perl & sybperl in such a fashion that 
LD_LIBRARY_PATH is not required, and this would speed up your CGI
scripts
quite a bit!
