Data Perl - Error loading module.

I have a strange issue in my script.

When script is run from command prompt it runs fine,but when run from cron it exist with error message.

I narrowed down the issue and found that " use Mail::Sender;" is the culprit.
If I comment the statment the code runs fine in both command and cron.
Error thrown is :
SVCENV: MIME::Base64 object version 3.01 does not match bootstrap parameter 2.12 at /usr/perl5/5.8.4/lib/sun4-solaris-64int/ line 253

Can anyone assist in solving it.

Thanks in advance

The big difference between running from the command line and using cron is that the command line version has inherited all of your personal profile environment settings, but the cron version has virtually no profile at all.

In cron, you can try this...
<date time> . <path to home>/.profile; <perl script>
to source your own profile before attempting to run the Perl.

I tried that, actually my perl script is called from a shell script( I have made an entry to call .profile in the .
but that doesnt sovle my problem.

At a glance, I bet cron is using a different perl than you are.

How do we find which Perl is cron using ??

Create a shell script:

which perl

Then run it from the command line, then run it from cron. Compare the results. If the result is different, then make sure you're explicitly using the perl you get from your command line.

If run from cron , it wont find any perl , that is why I have a launch script ( )which explicitly calls the needed perl .
More over I have also made an explicitly call to .profile in my launch script.
