Error with Terminal

Hello All Smilie,

I am a newbie in shell scripting and Linux.
Here's a problem I'm facing since last few days. Please tell me some logical reason behind this.
Thanks in advance.

To run my script I need to define some environment variables and need to run a TODO file.
In the first go everythings seems to run perfectly alright.

But after some time (generally after 1 day) the same code generates errors, like .lib file is missing, or .tech file is not configured properly or anything bla bla like that. Even if redefine the variables, start the whole process again, the error remains same. And the same error disappears if I run it from new terminal, like it was not there at all. I don't find any logical reason for that.

I dont think this is some problem related to the session of that perticular terminal because the time I mensioned here (1 day) is not same all the time. Some times its 1 day or it may be 2 days, 5 days, anything.

I am using RedHat, and my scripts are mainly written in perl.

Thanks you,
- MD

The simple answer is that you have one or more bugs in one or more of your programs or your operating environment. The bug may be in one or more of your perl scripts, one or more of your csh scripts, one or more of the other programs you've run between the time that they first worked and the time they stopped working, or it could easily be that you have manually changed something in your environment between the time you open a terminal session and the time one or more of your programs stops working.

If you'd like to show us the script that stops working and show us the EXACT error messages it produces when it stops working, we may be able to help you figure out what is going on.

If you want us to play another long game of us trying to get enough information to help you while you hide information from us, you may find that we'll tire of wasting our time.
