Subject: bad exec format with perl5.004 and sybperl-2.10 on AIX (RS/6000) computer, why?
Date: Jan 5 1999 12:17AM


Our unix support person has installed Perl5.004, sybperl-2.10 on a AIX (RS/6000
computer -- see version info below) and when I run a simple cgi program in 
offline mode, I get the below error messages -- any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

I get 'bad exec format'

stderr output
>which perl


18:/usr/local/httpd/cgi-bin/qstar>perl test_install2.cgi
