Subject apache-1.3.36 perl-5.6.1 Apache::ASP-2.59 problem
Date Fri, 28 Jul 2006 13:36:50 GMT
(Hate to reply to my own mail, but...)

for reasons I cannot figure out yet, this part of doesn't quite 
work as expected:
opendir(DIR, $file) || die("can't open $file for reading: $!");
my @files = readdir(DIR);
close DIR;

@files contains as many elements as files in $file (which in this 
context is actually a directory), but instead of filenames, they contain 
the empty string. Which of course leads to the deep recursion/out of 
memory error, given a directory with enough files.

Still don't get why this happens though.
And furthermore, why it works with 1.3.34 (all other things being equal 
- perl - mod_perl - Apache::ASP version etc) and doesn't on 1.3.36
