 What level of Perl needed for my system() call to work?

Thanks for tying. It seems to be that my Linux 6.2/Perl 5.005
combo necessitates me using the . command version, as in:
cd ../handlers
./process net://Eh:9613 90000000 > /dev/null

Which works for Linux 7.0/Perl 5.6 as well.
I still don't know if it is Perl limitation or not,
suspect not...
It looks like it was running tcsh, even though the
prompt was $ ! :(
