Subject: RE: Perl thru crontab
Date: Feb 1 2000 3:10PM

cron job doesn't take environment variables that you set for your command
shell environment. 
you can write a shell script to setup all necessary environment variables
first, then call your Perl script. 
Instead of running Perl script directly from crontab, you run this shell
script. this way you don't have to 
get your SA involved in set up  default cron variables.
