  • Maybe you can getthe whole system to reboot?
    (Yes, that has been known to be possible with few innocuous lines of Perl.)
    • I haven't yet figured out how to do that. I guess that makes debugging a pleasure when - just before the usual backtrace would appear - your system reboots. Ah, what a bad luck. :-)

      Meanwhile I was able to get rid of the out of memory thing (caused by a reidiculously high xlv_targlen value). After a while however you get to like such errors. Now I no longer get any errors but instead always get undef after assigning the glob. This is much harder to track down as I wont get any nice backtracks.

      Btw, Jarkko, you seem to have taken a break from the porters lately. Making holidays? How irresponsible that would be of you considering that others now have to do all the work! ;-)

        That reboot was very system specific, take a look at README.irix.

        More like retirement.

        I have to let others to have fun, too.
