Unlike RPG,  PERL is intutive and easy to figure out. 
No cryptic syntax.   

Help him out Hans

John Carr <VBG>
For some reason I can't seem to figure out the correct syntax for calling 
a Perl script with parms.  The error  I am getting is:

Can't open perl script "/QOPENSYS/DYNDNSUPDATE.PL 
'' 'POSTMASTER' 16660 'DOMAIN.COM'": No such path 
or directory.                          

I'm calling it With:
             CALL       PGM(PERL5/PERL) +                             
                          PARM('/QOPENSYS/DYNDNSUPDATE.PL +           
           '''' ''POSTMASTER'' 16660 ''DOMAIN.COM''')  

The Perl script starts out with:                                           
#!/usr/bin/perl -W
use diagnostics;
use strict;

($ip, $user, $pass, $domain) = @ARGV;

I'd sure appreciate it if anyone could give me a clue how to pass parms to
