Does this apply to active perl 126.96.36.1992-MSWin32-x64-295342? I know that it applies to the more generic version of Perl 5.14.x. Will ActiveState release a product specific patch to address this issue?
What do I use to get the number of files and directories in an upper directory. Win32::DirSize no longer works with 5.16 Perl.
After installing ActivePerl 5.24.0, we can no longer store a database handle in an environment variable.
We get the following error when trying to prepare a sql statement:
Can't locate object method "prepare" via package
The scripts works when I change the database handle from an environment variable to a local variable.
Is there an easy fix for this or do I have to change all of our code to use local variables to store a database handle?
I've installed ActivePerl 32 bits version.
gives the right answer.
When I want to run a script, I get a "permission denied" message each time I want to open a file.
I tried the following code :
and then ran it in cmd window (Administrator or not, it does not change anything) :
Cannot: Permission denied at test.pl line 1.
I am having issues configuring GCC/GDB with Activestate perl (v5.22.3 built for MSWin32-x64-multi-thread). Installing the toolchain works well (ppm install mingw) and I can build the module (perl, XS, C) in question, but it crashes at runtime. The same module compiles and runs under strawberry perl and doesn't crash. I am trying to track down the cause of the crash, but I can't get GDB to produce any decent output:
(gdb) bt #0 0x000000006865b3a8 in ?? () #1 0x0000000000725db9 in ?? () #2 0x0000000000725d08 in ?? () #3 0xffffffffffffffff in ?? ()
Greetings - I'm trying to do updates to various libraries in ActivePerl, and failing spectacularly. I'm wondering if I can get some assistance - would be greatly appreciated.
Starting from the top - I'm trying to use Text::CSV, and getting a failure "Can't locate auto/Text/CSV/getline.al in @INC...". A google search shows that I'm using a really old version of Text::CSV - version 0.5. I see that version 1.91 is the latest.
I recently installed v5.24.1 form MSWin32-x64, replacing an earlier version. Perldoc now fails every time with a message "Invalid parameter - -R"
I have searched the Net for this error and found a few people asking the question but no answers. Evidently it is a Windows-only problem not occurring in Unix.
Steps to reproduce the problem:
Using ActivePerl 188.8.131.520 and OpenSSL 1.1.0c run "perl Configure VC-WIN64A" from a Visual Studio 2015 command prompt.
The following error will be presented:
It looks like you don't have either nmake.exe or dmake.exe on your PATH,
so you will not be able to execute the commands from a Makefile. You can
install dmake.exe with the Perl Package Manager by running:
ppm install dmake
No error will be presented.
Once again, Windows scripting host integration is broken in the latest 5.22 and 5.24 releases. This occurred previously in version 184.108.40.2060, and was fixed in 220.127.116.111. See
Can anyone look into this?
I have an application that uses the line:
@files_ls = `dir`;
I use the result to produce a sorted list by time and I optionally only print files that match a regular expression.
The output is different between windows 7 and windows 10. The former has all the date info, the latter only produces the file name.
In a regular DOS prompt I get the same result on both systems.
Does anyone have a clue as to how to circumvent this problem?
