I would also consider it poor design to use a trick like that. The normal assumption is that a shebang and just running the command from command line are equivalent. Normal solution here is to have a command line switch to select one behavior or the other. That switch can be added to the shebang or the command line, whatever you choose. Ciao, Markus
