I am running a win2k adv server with Active Perl. Everything works fine but perl scripts cannot read files in other directories except the cgi-bin using relative addressing. EG.
Relative Addressing with MS Adv Ser 2k
$relative = "..\";
$filepath = "apps\downloads";
opendir(DIR, "$relative$filepath") || die("Cannot Open Dir!");
@dirlist = readdir(DIR);
All the directories and scripts have full permissions with the server and the same scripts
work perfectly on win 2k pro pws, win NT3.51server, win 98pws, and any remote unix server. This inability prevents the use of some of perls most powerful features. Is this an
attempt of MS to widen the gulf between them and Unix and force programmers to adopt ASP?
