Thanks for the help. I'll try to respond in the order I received
1. I renamed find_orphans.pl find_orphans.py, same result (I had actually
renamed it find_orphans.pl after seeing another thread call it by that
name, I was pretty sure it didn't matter, as I couldn't explain why it
wasn't working, I was willing to try anything i could find). I also
searched for the file, and only find the one I created.
2. I double checked to see if it was executable. I was before, and still
is after running chmod +x find_orphans.py.
3. I checked to see if the first line of the script exists in the path the
script expects to see, and it does (/usr/bin/env).
4. I ran ./mythwikiscripts, and here's what I see:
josh at Myth-Backend:/usr/bin$ ./mythwikiscripts
MythTV Interactive Script Downloader.
This script parses the wiki, and may take several minutes.
Loading took 5.45 seconds
