I'm currently looking into getting the perl make process have clean output, i.e. the only thing appearing on stderr should be warnings and errors, not normal status output. Thus one could build perl with "make 2>/tmp/errs" then just look through that file for warnings etc that need fixing. At the moment enc2xs outputs lots of status info on stderr, so the error file gets cluttered up with lots of Writing compiled form 12946 bytes in string tables 4452 bytes (25.6%) saved spotting duplicates 7 bytes (0.054%) saved using substrings Reading iso-8859-2 (iso-8859-2) Reading iso-8859-3 (iso-8859-3) Reading iso-8859-4 (iso-8859-4) type noise. Would it be possible to change this so that sort of info goes to stdout, and only issues that might require fixing go to stderr? Thanks. -- My get-up-and-go just got up and went.
