why doesn't this error
Message ID:
First, I read perldoc -f exec() and did as follows:

exec "rsh $plant /u1/bin/forkit ''" or
       print STDERR "Couldn't fork it.\n $!\n";

BUT, even though the file it should be exec - ing '' does NOT exist 
on the remote system, the error doesn't get kicked off.  The only error I've 
gotten it to register is if $plant is invalid.  Any ideas?
