Thanks, Like I say it works fine over command line, I've also got my
own perl scripts running on the same machine that point to similar
directories and use the same seperators so I'm not entirely convinced
that it's that either. Although I will go through it again (I did try
replacing / by \\ but the scripts were unaffected by the change).

...and thanks to you guys for all the useful feedback so far.
