palm/plucker (plucker-1.8_2) installs symlinks like
plucker-build, plucker-decode and plucker-dump into
Those symlinks link to Python files (.py extensions)
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 58 Oct 2 20:08 plucker-build
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 63 Oct 2 20:08 plucker-decode
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 58 Oct 2 20:08 plucker-dump
Calling them from a shell therefore results in a
permission denied error message:
/usr/local/bin/plucker-build: Permission denied.
/usr/local/bin/plucker-decode: Permission denied.
/usr/local/bin/plucker-dump: Permission denied.
but calling them with 'python', everything is okay:
> python /usr/local/bin/plucker-build
Error: No output filename specified, and stdout is a terminal!
Usage: /usr/local/bin/plucker-build [OPTIONS] [HOMEURL]
(Type '/usr/local/bin/plucker-build --help' for more information.)
Aren't files in /usr/local/bin supposed to be directly
executable? A little /bin/sh wrapper would be much better
than a symlink to a Python file.
