in reply to Windows 7: fork in perl script spawns new cmd window

OK - so adding "call" like so
open(IN, "call svn info ... | ");
fixes the problem - but I'd still like to understand why this is needed in this new environment, and isn't needed on other W7 machines or older XP machines around here.

[atcroft]: PriNet: Those code bits worked for me, with test hashes, but I didn't test it with more than a few simple test cases. *shrug* Had hoped it would help, at least.
[PriNet]: i think i found the problem, the "source" array that sets the individual key values isn't being cleared, it's keeping the previous values...
[atcroft]: PriNet: You might consider posting a small, self-contained snippet of that segment of your code, and see if someone else has a better idea.....
[atcroft]: PriNet: Ahhh... interesting.
