Running on: Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard The server is running Strawberry Perl(perl 5, version 22, subversion 0 (v5.22.0) built for MSWin32-x64-multi-thread). require File::stat; File::stat::stat("filename"); Throws this error: ,Undefined subroutine &File::stat::stat called ... When I removed 'File::Stat' from its directory (C:\Strawberry\perl\lib\File\Stat.pm), the problem disappeared. Somehow File::Stat was being called instead of 'File::stat' ?? That's just my guess. Thanks. Austin Kenny

Are you sure that you did remove it from perl\lib\ and not perl\site\lib\ ? -- Alexandr Ciornii, http://chorny.net

My mistake. It is still in perl\site\lib. I removed it from " C:\Strawberry\perl\site\lib\". I located it using 'perldoc -l File::Stat'. Thanks. Show quoted text

This is known problem. Core perl and Strawberry have File::stat and there is File::Stat on CPAN. Modules from perl\site\lib (installed from CPAN) have priority over perl\lib (core perl). https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=83208 -- Alexandr Ciornii, http://chorny.net

Ok. I checked another box with Strawberry Perl v5.18 installed. It doesn't have 'Perl::Stat' installed in the site\lib, only in the perl\lib and I don't get the error there. So, some module that I installed must have installed File::Stat as a dependency on the site\lib, and that's what caused the problem. I guess it boils down to unfortunate Module naming and Windows case insensitivity. Thanks for the info about the order of priority with the Perl libraries. I can work around the issue now. Austin.
