in thread sysread() is deprecated on :utf8 handles

Hello again mje,

Did you try the module that I recommend earlier?

Regarding your question The problem I am seeking an answer to is how to continue using sysread without getting the deprecated warnings I do not recommend that but you can read more here Supressing warnings.

Let us know what you have tried so far, provide us a sample of code to replicate the problem. We are just guessing for the moment.

Hope this helps, BR
