Subject: Net::FTP->new does not set $@ on timeout
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 3.7k
Net::FTP->new does not set $@ if a timeout occurs: % cat #!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use Net::FTP; use Data::Dumper; my $host = shift; my $ftp = Net::FTP->new( $host, Timeout => 10, Debug => 10, ); if (!$ftp) { print Dumper $@; } __END__ % perl $HOST Net::FTP>>> Net::FTP(2.77) Net::FTP>>> Exporter(5.62) Net::FTP>>> Net::Cmd(2.29) Net::FTP>>> IO::Socket::INET(1.31) Net::FTP>>> IO::Socket(1.30_01) Net::FTP>>> IO::Handle(1.27) Net::FTP=GLOB(0x23c9c78): Timeout at line 9 $VAR1 = ''; The Net::FTP documentation says | If the constructor fails undef will be returned and an error message | will be in $@ but $@ stays empty. It I set the timeout to a higher value (30 secs) everything works fine. % perl -V Summary of my perl5 (revision 5 version 10 subversion 0) configuration: Platform: osname=linux, osvers=2.6.26-1-vserver-amd64, archname=x86_64-linux-gnu-thread-multi uname='linux excelsior 2.6.26-1-vserver-amd64 #1 smp sat nov 8 20:24:14 utc 2008 x86_64 gnulinux ' config_args='-Dusethreads -Duselargefiles -Dccflags=-DDEBIAN -Dcccdlflags=-fPIC -Darchname=x86_64-linux-gnu -Dprefix=/usr -Dprivlib=/usr/share/perl/5.10 -Darchlib=/usr/lib/perl/5.10 -Dvendorprefix=/usr -Dvendorlib=/usr/share/perl5 -Dvendorarch=/usr/lib/perl5 -Dsiteprefix=/usr/local -Dsitelib=/usr/local/share/perl/5.10.0 -Dsitearch=/usr/local/lib/perl/5.10.0 -Dman1dir=/usr/share/man/man1 -Dman3dir=/usr/share/man/man3 -Dsiteman1dir=/usr/local/man/man1 -Dsiteman3dir=/usr/local/man/man3 -Dman1ext=1 -Dman3ext=3perl -Dpager=/usr/bin/sensible-pager -Uafs -Ud_csh -Ud_ualarm -Uusesfio -Uusenm -DDEBUGGING=-g -Doptimize=-O2 -Duseshrplib -Dd_dosuid -des' hint=recommended, useposix=true, d_sigaction=define useithreads=define, usemultiplicity=define useperlio=define, d_sfio=undef, uselargefiles=define, usesocks=undef use64bitint=define, use64bitall=define, uselongdouble=undef usemymalloc=n, bincompat5005=undef Compiler: cc='cc', ccflags ='-D_REENTRANT -D_GNU_SOURCE -DDEBIAN -fno-strict-aliasing -pipe -I/usr/local/include -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64', optimize='-O2 -g', cppflags='-D_REENTRANT -D_GNU_SOURCE -DDEBIAN -fno-strict-aliasing -pipe -I/usr/local/include' ccversion='', gccversion='4.3.2', gccosandvers='' intsize=4, longsize=8, ptrsize=8, doublesize=8, byteorder=12345678 d_longlong=define, longlongsize=8, d_longdbl=define, longdblsize=16 ivtype='long', ivsize=8, nvtype='double', nvsize=8, Off_t='off_t', lseeksize=8 alignbytes=8, prototype=define Linker and Libraries: ld='cc', ldflags =' -L/usr/local/lib' libpth=/usr/local/lib /lib /usr/lib /lib64 /usr/lib64 libs=-lgdbm -lgdbm_compat -ldb -ldl -lm -lpthread -lc -lcrypt perllibs=-ldl -lm -lpthread -lc -lcrypt libc=/lib/, so=so, useshrplib=true, gnulibc_version='2.7' Dynamic Linking: dlsrc=dl_dlopen.xs, dlext=so, d_dlsymun=undef, ccdlflags='-Wl,-E' cccdlflags='-fPIC', lddlflags='-shared -O2 -g -L/usr/local/lib' Characteristics of this binary (from libperl): Compile-time options: MULTIPLICITY PERL_DONT_CREATE_GVSV PERL_IMPLICIT_CONTEXT PERL_MALLOC_WRAP USE_64_BIT_ALL USE_64_BIT_INT USE_ITHREADS USE_LARGE_FILES USE_PERLIO USE_REENTRANT_API Built under linux Compiled at Nov 27 2008 21:47:49 %ENV: PERL_AUTOINSTALL="--defaultdeps" PERL_EXTUTILS_AUTOINSTALL="--defaultdeps" PERL_MM_USE_DEFAULT="1" @INC: /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/perl/5.10.0 /usr/local/share/perl/5.10.0 /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.10 /usr/share/perl/5.10 /usr/local/lib/site_perl .
