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

Could your test be failing due to a timing issue, here, due to this param?

It doesn't really look like it because it does appear as though you're handling and sending in the $age param correctly, but printing out the variables wouldn't hurt (ie. my $x = -M $file; print "$x: $age\n";) to see what's going on there for real.

Can you reproduce it on a local machine at all?

You could try adding a delay of a second after the cleanup() routine (eg: sleep 1;), and before the file-exists test. Perhaps the full cleanup of the file isn't quite complete in some systems before checking if the file is really gone.

Title:
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.
