Subject: win32 crash with PARed Archive::Zip and fork
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 819b
Running the following command on Windows produces a crash dialog: pp -e "($c,@a)=@_=(1);Archive::Zip->new();fork" && a.exe Crash dialog: "a.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." ... Debug / Send Error Report / Don't Send It's strange that the assignments somehow effect things..? Is this a PAR bug, Archive::Zip bug or a perl bug? Happens on all the windows machines I have access to, ActivePerl builds 817 and 820. Windows XP PAR = 0.959 Archive::Zip = 1.16 Compress::Zlib = 1.41 perl -v This is perl, v5.8.8 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread (with 25 registered patches, see perl -V for more detail) Copyright 1987-2006, Larry Wall Binary build 817 [257965] provided by ActiveState Built Mar 20 2006 17:54:25 Thanks, Brad Bowman
