Thanks for asking. You're right. I didn't offer enough information. I was
hoping there might be a known issue which wouldn't require further

Here's the Applescript:

property perlScript : "PowerCenter:Desktop Folder:macweblint.pl"

tell application "MacPerl"
	return Do Script ({perlScript}) mode Batch without extract
end tell

When I run this with a very simple one-liner test script, it works every
time. When I try it with macweblint, I get an error: "MacPerl got an error:
An error of type 2 has occurred."

But, if I open the script in BBEdit, using the MacPerl plug-ins, I can
click "run script" and it runs without a problem. Presumably, BBEdit is
using the same AppleEvent method to run the script as I'm using with
Applescript, so I'm puzzled why it works here but not in an Applescript.

I'm going to try to whittle down the macweblint script for testing purposes
and see if there's any particular code which seems to be causing this error.
