( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hi folks, I've been experiencing the same problem that was reported earlier ("it seems to be going very fast"). I'm on Win32 (both NT4 and Win2k) and played around with the script for a while before figuring out a fix. It looks like a:
BINMODE(SONG);
fixes all. I also took out the forking-ness of the server, just to simplify the debug process, but I'm sure that's OK. With the fix in place, the code segment now looks like this:
<text cut> ... #what song are we playing warn( "play song: $song\n"); #open the song, or continue to try another one open (SONG, $song) || next; #### NEW CODE #### binmode (SONG); #### END NEW CODE #### my $read_status = 1; my $print_status = 1; my $chunk; .... <end cut>
I think this fix suggests that somewhere in the MP3's being streamed, read() was encountering what it thought was an EOF, where in fact it was misinterpreting the data. Am I right? (I guessed at binmode, read the cookbook, then understood)

Hope this helps,

  • 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).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
