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

You could extend F::CF to support zeroing out the counter.

Something like...

package File::CounterFile::Resettable; use base qw( File::CounterFile ); sub reset { my($self) = @_; if ($self->locked) { $self->{'value'} = 0; $self->{updated} = 1; } else { $self->lock; $self->{'value'} = 0; $self->{updated} = 1; $self->unlock; } $self->{'value'}; # return value }

...and then later in your script...

my $count = File::CounterFile::Resettable->new("./asr_counter.txt"); $count->lock(); $count->reset(); $count->unlock();
(Code is untested, but you hopefully get the idea!)


Update: $code =~ s/\t/ /g; # for readability.

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.
