in reply to open vs. sysopen

I'd guess that there's no use POSIX; in the snippet. POSIX.pm is where the O_WRONLY, O_TRUNC and O_CREAT constants are defined.

If my guess is right, you also need to use strict; and use warnings; (see Use strict warnings and diagnostics or die for a good discussion of this), which would point you to the real error - the barewords, O_*.

Update: Strike obviously incorrect info

strict, warnings, die...

    I do use both: use warnings; and use strict;.
    Even though I was using $! to get the error message, I changed ascii_error() to die() supplying the full error in a reply to one of the posts above. As to the rest of the suggestions the previous reply to your post explains me.

    Thanks,

    A poor guess. The code shown in the original post clearly has use Fcntl, which by default will export all system F_* and O_* constants.
