End of File Issues

If you install IGOR and get 'premature end of script headers' or something similar when you try to log in, make sure that the perl files (*.pl) are executable. Then run


to see if that works. If you get errors here, either the perl interpreter isn't at /usr/bin/perl, or you may have DOS end of line characters instead of unix ones on the files. This is easy to do when you use FTP. You can use

dos2unix *.pl
chmod a+x *.pl

to switch them over. That should fix it.
