Anyone seen any behavior with File::stat (or stat or lstat) returning an undefined value used in a File::Find routine? I'm getting consistently inconsistent results. :-) Meaning, I can't seem to stat certain files and they are the same files -- seemingly. Can't find a thing wrong with the files -- they are regular text files, most of them. But sometimes a file will come back undefined. Beats the mess out of me. Can't seem to find a lot on this out there, so I thought I would ask. I'm displaying to stdout all the files File::Find returns with $File::Find::name, so it's traversing whatever tree I give it, but... I get undefineds here and there. I own the files, they are 644... They are not locked... No explanation.
File::stat returns undef only some times?! :-(
And what's the big idea of someone stealing my screen name here at TPA?!! :-) (Just kidding. Nothing that a simple article prefix didn't fix... :-))
