( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hi all, I have the following script a.pl
use strict; use warnings; my ($output_file) = 'a.exe'; open INPUT, $output_file or die "Cannot read the installer fil +e $output_file: $!"; binmode INPUT; my $content = ""; my $buffer; while ( read (INPUT, $buffer, 65536) # read in (up to) 64k +chunks, write ) { if ($!){die $!} $content.=$buffer; }; die "Cannot read the installer file $output_file: $!" if $! && + ($! ne 'Bad file descriptor'); close INPUT; return $content;
When i run it on linux it works, but on solaris i get an error message in the read command.
Bad file number at a.pl line 13.<br>
What can be the reason? Thanks, David

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
