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
quite a bit!
