+objectiveCyd​​ Yea, that's true. I did get to come in whenever I wanted to yesterday instead of bring forced to sling myself in there at O-waaaa? O'clock. Worked at a Walmart photo lap at my old job and they would pull this move of stay till 11 then come in at 4 the next day. Had to prep chemicals it's a wonder I didn't start a EPA insident.

If I'm building autoconf (which has Perl dependencies) and get the following error

truncate not implemented at ../lib/Autom4te/XFile.pm line 280

does it indicate a problem with the existing installation of Perl, a problem with the build (configure issues, etc) or something else?

Note: The ../lib/Autom4te/XFile.pm is in the autoconf build dir.

Additionally, here's the relevant code in XFile.pm

277 sub truncate
278 {
279 my ($fh, $len) = @_;
280 if (!truncate ($fh, $len))
281 {
282 my $file = $fh->name;
283 fatal "cannot truncate $file at $len: $!";
284 }
285 }

Would this be the correct place to ask a question about an application or build process that uses perl...like autoconf?

I wouldn't say it is the place.  It is a place...

Personally I think you're much better off asking at http://perlmonks.org/?node=sopw

This is driving me crazy and I'm not sure there's a solution.

Has anyone used less as a pager without it displaying ANSI control characters ([1m [0m) when viewing man pages?
