Subject: exit status $? lost after DBI-connect to ORACLE
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 402b
DBD-Oracle-1.17 (64bit) DBI-1.50 AIX 5.3 Perl 5.8.6 64 Bit After DBI-connect() the exit status $? is wrong for calls to system function. $dbh=DBI->connect("DBI:Oracle:","/","",); system("echo hallo "); printf("testb >>8 [%s]\n",$?>>8); Prints: testb >>8 [72057594037927935] This is 64bit integer value for -1. See also bug #16548, similar, but not same. Possibly related to signal handler. Thomas

Hi, we never found a solution for this, but worked around it. Guess its a 64-bit issue. -Thomas On Di. 12. Dez. 2006, 11:44:39, PYTHIAN wrote: Show quoted text

Could you post the Work around with some code examples and I will add them to the read-me? Yes I think it is a 64 bit issue there are alot of them out there. What we need is a true 64 bit perl to drive this forward. cheers

Our workaround was to write the exit code of system-ed external program to a file and then read this file (pretty dumb, yes). So we had to wrap each external program with a shell script that writes $? to a file (can't remember how we gave it a unique file name). Anyway, it was a dumb workaround, not worth any notice in a serious README :-) On Di. 12. Dez. 2006, 11:54:21, PYTHIAN wrote: Show quoted text
