Description Bob McCormick 2003-03-26 22:17:59 UTC
Description of problem:

perl 5.6.1 include in redhat 8 doesn't fully support >2g files

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Version     : 5.6.1
Release     : 26.72.3   

How reproducible:

Easily reproducible

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a file larger than 2 gig. (dd if=/dev/zero of=test.file bs=1024 
count=3000000000)
2.perl -e 'print -M test.file' (This should print the size of the file.  It 
works if test.file is smaller than 2 gig)

    
Actual results:

The value returned by -M is undefined.  

Expected results:

-M should return the size of the file, and does if the file is smaller than 2 
gig.

Comment 1 Chip Turner 2003-03-30 20:56:23 UTC
Red Hat 8 ships with perl 5.8.0, not perl 5.6.1.  Perl 5.8.0 in RH 8 does
support large files.
