Hello Paul, I found a bug in IO-Compress which makes it hang on specific files. My distribution: Gentoo Linux (stable branch and completely up2date) perl -v: This is perl, v5.8.8 built for i686-linux kernel: PREEMPT AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2600+ AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux I first discovered the bug in IO-Compress-2.024 but the bug also exists in version 2.030. For my bug report and a simple test case, please see For convenience, I paste the data file and the script here too: test.log: #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use IO::Uncompress::AnyUncompress qw(anyuncompress $AnyUncompressError); my $log_file = "test.log"; my $log = new IO::Uncompress::AnyUncompress $log_file, Transparent => 1, AutoClose => 1 or die "Cannot open $log_file: $AnyUncompressError\n"; while (<$log>) { print } I hope I have given enough information for you to be able to reproduce and solve the problem. Kind regards, Evert
