Iexample-incorrect-path-for-interpreter

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.108.13. That is the most recent version we know about.

The interpreter used by this example script is installed at another location on Debian systems. Normally the path should be updated to match the Debian location.

Whilst the script may work, it is in violation of Debian Policy. This may have been caused by usrmerge.

Note that, as a particular exception, Debian Policy § 10.4 states that Perl scripts should use /usr/bin/perl directly and not /usr/bin/env, etc.

Please refer to Debian Policy Manual section 10.4 and https://wiki.debian.org/UsrMerge for details.
