Weird Error moving a file


 
Thread Tools Search this Thread
# 8  
We concluded last time that the script will behave differently according to the length of the expanded filenames parameter to the ksh sub-shell. Truncation of the command line in AIX is a well-known issue.

After a failure the script may appear to work providing that it is run more than one time.

It is possible to rewrite the script to not contain the design error and to remove some pointless processing.

The absence of a syntax error or other runtime error does not mean that a process has worked. Did you count the number of input files and compare with the number of output files?

CPANPLUS::Error(3perl)					 Perl Programmers Reference Guide				    CPANPLUS::Error(3perl)

NAME
CPANPLUS::Error - error handling for CPANPLUS SYNOPSIS
use CPANPLUS::Error qw[cp_msg cp_error]; DESCRIPTION
This module provides the error handling code for the CPANPLUS libraries, and is mainly intended for internal use. FUNCTIONS
cp_msg("message string" [,VERBOSE]) Records a message on the stack, and prints it to "STDOUT" (or actually $MSG_FH, see the "GLOBAL VARIABLES" section below), if the "VERBOSE" option is true. The "VERBOSE" option defaults to false. msg() An alias for "cp_msg". cp_error("error string" [,VERBOSE]) Records an error on the stack, and prints it to "STDERR" (or actually $ERROR_FH, see the "GLOBAL VARIABLES" sections below), if the "VERBOSE" option is true. The "VERBOSE" options defaults to true. error() An alias for "cp_error". CLASS METHODS
CPANPLUS::Error->stack() Retrieves all the items on the stack. Since "CPANPLUS::Error" is implemented using "Log::Message", consult its manpage for the function "retrieve" to see what is returned and how to use the items. CPANPLUS::Error->stack_as_string([TRACE]) Returns the whole stack as a printable string. If the "TRACE" option is true all items are returned with "Carp::longmess" output, rather than just the message. "TRACE" defaults to false. CPANPLUS::Error->flush() Removes all the items from the stack and returns them. Since "CPANPLUS::Error" is implemented using "Log::Message", consult its manpage for the function "retrieve" to see what is returned and how to use the items. GLOBAL VARIABLES
$ERROR_FH This is the filehandle all the messages sent to "error()" are being printed. This defaults to *STDERR. $MSG_FH This is the filehandle all the messages sent to "msg()" are being printed. This default to *STDOUT. perl v5.14.2 2014-09-29 CPANPLUS::Error(3perl)
