Does this give the error:
open my $file, '+>', 'testfile' or die "Can't write testfile: $!\n"; print $file 'test!'; seek $file, 0, 0; print <$file> . "\n"; seek $file, 0, 0; truncate $file, 0 or die "Can't truncate testfile: $!\n"; close $file or die "Can't save testfile: $!\n";

If so, what's the error? truncate says that if truncate isn't implemented it's a fatal error, but I'm not sure what OSes that would include.

BTW, it's usually a good idea to show us what you've tried so we can work from that.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
