Re: [vikas.deep] Code hangs when i execute

If you say you are "ready to bet---", I backtrack simply because I am not in a position to put forth anything new. Whatever I have said is based on my experience so far and my friends in this or other (public) forums are expected to accept or reject whatever i or any body else says in good faith. Actually I faced something similar just 15-20 days back. May be what you are saying might be true or may be not I am not competent enough to say. After my problem I tell you what i did was that I shifted myself to a Linux (Fedora) machine. I am still using perl 5.8 but yes I do want to use perl 5.10 with a "switch" and "say" and other new features. In case the script that I was not able to run earlier on(Windows Vista,Activeperl5.10,32 bits architecture) works this time. At least for my purpose I would get a satisfactory answer whatever anybody(p5p developers or anybody) says.I am a learner---
I dont think that Perlguru is a betting ground and I do not want to lose my friends or money over here.
I am sure FishMonger is speaking figuratively, not literally, about the betting. But it is good to take what you read on forums with a grain of salt unless you know the person you are communicating with has a good history of providing accurate information.
While I always try and provide accurate information I am also sometimes relying on a third party that I trust, and if he is wrong for some reason I might also repeat the same bad information, although I generally do try and confirm information myself, I can't always.
I got the info about activerperl 5.10 32 bit being a dead horse from the activestate forums from one of the activestate personel (this was a while back).
I also read that some people were using Win32 modules on Win64 boxes with no problem although for obvious reasons that can't be an official recommendation.
