Magic Headers in a2ping and other perl scripts
recently we had a discussion on the maintainers list of Debian-TeX.
Your perl scripts (like a2ping) contain a header to make them
executable even on strangly configured systems. The QA-tool of Debian
complains about that header. We filed a bug against it (#344269), but
the final result was, that it is a bug in a perl script (contained in
a Debian package), if it contains that magic header instead of a
On your home page I found magicc.pl, which was made to add the magic
header to a perl script. Now we're looking for the reverse tool:
simply replacing the magic header by #!, seemed not to work.
Please be so kind and provide one. We intend keep the perl script in
the .orig.tar.gz as it is and "fix" the perl script during build.
