User www doesn't have a shell, profile & hence PATH. I don't know how your path is being set but it depends on perl & how your script looks. Look at Env(3) & the other perldocs. If you want to do it quick, call traceroute with the path in your scripts e.g: system "/usr/sbin/traceroute $some_host"; There's probably a perl module with a "traceroute" in it but I'm afraid I don't know it offhand.
