Actually, you shouldn't load the module File::stat when you say (stat($fh))[8,9], because the module overrides the stat builtin, and the overridden stat returns an object providing methods such as atime, mtime, etc., instead of a list of values...

In other words, either simply don't use File::stat, or say something like

my $st = stat($fh) or die $!; my ($atime, $mtime) = ($st->atime, $st->mtime); ...

or even (if you like):

use File::stat ":FIELDS"; ... stat($fh) or die $!; my ($atime, $mtime) = ($st_atime, $st_mtime); ...

(Of course, you could also do away with the intermediate variables, and put the method calls directly in utime's argument list, i.e. utime($st->atime, $st->mtime, $fh), in case you're using File::stat).

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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.
