Subject: Hexadecimal number > 0xffffffff non-portable
Download (untitled) / with headers

I have received this error using RRD::Simple on OS X on both Snow Leopard and Lion with a custom built perl. Hexadecimal number > 0xffffffff non-portable at /usr/local/wu/root/perl- 5.14.1/lib/site_perl/5.14.1/RRD/ line 1125.2011 I was able to resolve the issue using the attached patch which uses Math::BigInt. Please let me know if you need any additional information.
