( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

A word from the field, and sorry it took me awhile to track down my notes:

I have a script that worked fine for months, doing something like my @pdfs = glob("$path/*.pdf");. One day the script failed, and with use diagnostics; I got this:

internal error: glob failed at ...
(P) Something went wrong with the external program(s) used for glob and <*.c>. This may mean that your csh (C shell) is broken. If so, you should change all of the csh-related variables in config.sh: If you have tcsh, make the variables refer to it as if it were csh (e.g. full_csh='/usr/bin/tcsh'); otherwise, make them all empty (except that d_csh should be 'undef') so that Perl will think csh is missing. In either case, after editing config.sh, run ./Configure -S and rebuild Perl.

There were not "too many files", which I had seen before with glob. This was new... The environment is out of my hands, so I simply gave up with glob and used File::Find.

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
