Take another look at the shebang line. You are asking for the version of perl installed in /usr/bin. This is the system version of perl (which is why you are getting 5.10). Your scripts need to start with one of the following paths: #!/home/USERNAME/perl5/perlbrew/perls/perl-5.14.0/bin/perl or #!/usr/bin/env perl The benefit of the first is that it will always use that version of perl, the downside is the same (e.g. when you upgrade to Perl 5.14.1 it will still use 5.14.0). The benefit of the second is that uses the first perl it finds in your PATH, the downsides are that you have to have your PATH setup correctly (for instance, cron jobs don't tend have proper environments) and you always get the version in the PATH (if you have multiple versions of perl that each are doing different things, this might not be the best solution). A third option is to always use the perl interpreter in the commandline: perl foo.pl The shebang line is not used to find the perl interpreter in that case (but I believe some of the switches still have an effect). This is the solution I tend to use these days. -- Chas. Owens wonkden.net The most important skill a programmer can have is the ability to read.
