That's not the issue here; I can use CATALYST_VAR to rename it to whatever I want, it still doesn't give me access to the Catalyst's context object outside of a catalyst app - which is what I'm after here.

I'm trying to get an external script run by a cronjob, to re-use an existing Catalyst template containing [% c.uri_for() %] statements that point to actions within the cat app itself, instead of having to hard code URIs.
