QOPENSYS file system is case sensitive.  It is not "QOPENSYS" but rather
"QOpenSys"  or exactly how it is spelled on your system.  Our system may
have been renamed.  Check you system and spell it exactly the same.

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
