I believe (w/o knowing anything about Ingres) that you are
suffering from environmental differences. When you run the
perl script from a shell the userid is you and the enviroment
is, say, from your .login + .cshrc.

Consider when the HTTPD forks and exec's Perl to run the
script. Firstly the userid may be different - but also the
environment is likely widely different.

Go looking for neccessary environment variables ...
