missing Path(in UNIX) when i launch a job on to unix machine using windows SSh


i want run an unix application from a windows program/application.i am using SSH(command line version)to log on to a unix machine from windows. the application has to read a configuration file inorder to run. the configuration file .CFG is in bin in my home directory. but the application searches for .CFG in the root bin. what sould i do to overcome this?
when i open a ssh window and run this unix application it runs fine i.e it searches in the correct place for .CFG

your help is appreciated.

CGI::Application::Plugin::ConfigAuto(3pm)		User Contributed Perl Documentation		 CGI::Application::Plugin::ConfigAuto(3pm)

CGI::Application::Plugin::ConfigAuto - Easy config file management for CGI::Application SYNOPSIS
use CGI::Application::Plugin::ConfigAuto (qw/cfg/); In your instance script: my $app = WebApp->new(PARAMS => { cfg_file => '' }); $app->run(); In your application module: sub my_run_mode { my $self = shift; # Access a config hash key directly $self->cfg('field'); # Return config as hash %CFG = $self->cfg; } DESCRIPTION
CGI::Application::Plugin::ConfigAuto adds easy access to config file variables to your CGI::Application modules. Lazy loading is used to prevent the config file from being parsed if no configuration variables are accessed during the request. In other words, the config file is not parsed until it is actually needed. The Config::Auto package provides the framework for this plugin. RATIONALE
"CGI::Application" promotes re-usable applications by moving a maximal amount of code into modules. For an application to be fully re- usable without code changes, it is also necessary to store configuration variables in a separate file. This plugin supports multiple config files for a single application, allowing config files to override each other in a particular order. This covers even complex cases, where you have a global config file, and second local config file which overrides a few variables. It is recommended that you to declare your config file locations in the instance scripts, where it will have minimum impact on your application. This technique is ideal when you intend to reuse your module to support multiple configuration files. If you have an application with multiple instance scripts which share a single config file, you may prefer to call the plugin from the setup() method. DECLARING CONFIG FILE LOCATIONS
# In your instance script # value can also be an arrayref of config files my $app = WebApp->new(PARAMS => { cfg_file => '' }) # OR ... # Pass in an array of config files, and they will be processed in order. $app->cfg_file('../../config/'); Your config files should be referenced using the syntax example above. Note that the key "config_files" can be used as alternative to cfg_file. The format is detected automatically using Config::Auto. It it known to support the following formats: colon separated, space separated, equals separated, XML, Perl code, and Windows INI. See that modules documentation for complete details. METHODS
cfg() # Access a config hash key directly $self->cfg('field'); # Return config as hash my %CFG = $self->cfg; # return as hashref my $cfg_href = $self->cfg; A method to access project configuration variables. The config file is parsed on the first call with a perl hash representation stored in memory. Subsequent calls will use this version, rather than re-reading the file. In list context, it returns the configuration data as a hash. In scalar context, it returns the configuration data as a hashref. config() "config()" in CGI::Application::Standard::Config is provided as an alias to cfg() for compliance with CGI::Application::Standard::Config. It always exported by default per the standard. std_config() "std_config()" in CGI::Application::Standard::Config is implemented to comply with CGI::Application::Standard::Config. It's for developers. Users can ignore it. cfg_file() # Usual $self->cfg_file(''); # Supply the first format, guess the second $self->cfg_file('',{ format => 'perl' } ); Supply an array of config files, and they will be processed in order. If a hash reference if found it, will be used to supply the format for the previous file in the array. FILE FORMAT HINTS
Perl Here's a simple example of my favorite config file format: Perl. Having the "shebang" line at the top helps "Config::Auto" to identify it as a Perl file. Also, be sure that your last statement returns a hash reference. #!/usr/bin/perl my %CFG = (); # directory path name $CFG{DIR} = '/home/mark/www'; # website URL $CFG{URL} = ''; \%CFG; SEE ALSO
