Thanks for the info, but I think this possibly way out side my level
Would what you have suggested allow get_iplayer find the path to Perl
when I try to run get_iplayer from the terminal?
If it does then I don't fully understand your instructions.
I assume mkdir $HOME/.MacOSX creates a directory. I tried it but
find the directory. When I used cat > $HOME/.MacOSX/environment.plist
Terminal, it seemed to hang.
When you say "paste the text of the new file here" what text do you

should handle it without having to use finder which just doesn't
like directories that start with a dot.
Note that you cannot add things to &PATH this way. You have to
specify the whole thing with full path names. The file is read when
you log in to OS neXt in the GUI sense. It is not read when you
open a Terminal or run a perl script.
