perf script: Show proper message when failed list scripts
Perf shows the usage message when perf scripts folder failed to open, which misleads users to let them think the command is being mistyped. This patch shows a proper message and guides users to check the PERF_EXEC_PATH environment variable in that case. Before: $ perf script --list Usage: perf script [<options>] or: perf script [<options>] record <script> [<record-options>] <command> or: perf script [<options>] report <script> [script-args] or: perf script [<options>] <script> [<record-options>] <command> or: perf script [<options>] <top-script> [script-args] -l, --list list available scripts After: $ perf script --list open(/home/user/perf-core/scripts) failed. Check for "PERF_EXEC_PATH" env to set scripts dir.
