I was using Perl 5.8.0 from ActivePerl until just recently. I was told that the business server that my scripts are going to be running on is version 5.004_02. So I uninstalled 5.8 and installed the same version that our business server has. Here's the problem, I tested running a script that worked fine before and it no longer works. First it complained that it couldn't find POSIX.pm, so I copy it from my machine to the server. And now I'm getting this error:
Can't modify subroutine entry in scalar assignment at C:\Perl\lib/POSI
3, near ");"
BEGIN not safe after errors--compilation aborted at C:\Perl\lib/POSIX.
+pm line 5.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at ftp_Invent.pl line 11.
I simply using the strftime function to get and print the localtime of the server.
use POSIX qw(strftime);
$now_string = strftime '%Y%m%d.%H%M%S', localtime;
my $now_string2 = strftime '%Y%m%d%H%M%S', localtime;
Can anyone explain to me why I'm having this problem? Thanks in advance.
