1) make sure you are using backticks ( usually on the same key as ~) and not
' - single quoates ,, and definately not ".

2) make sure yor script can actually find perl, and is marked executrable (
I image under a winXX envirtonment this would equate to having yout .pl
files associated with the perl binary

3) double check that your data type is right for the output, see the docs
for discussion of Guage, Absolute etc..

hope this helps
