git-gui: Correct starting of git-remote to handle -w option
Current versions of git-remote apparently are passing the -w option to Perl as part of the shbang line: #!/usr/bin/perl -w this caused a problem in git-gui and gave the user a Tcl error with the message: "git-remote not supported: #!/usr/bin/perl -w". The fix for this is to treat the shbang line as a Tcl list and look at the first element only for guessing the executable name. Once we know the executable name we use the remaining elements (if any exist) as arguments to the executable, before the script filename. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <>
