in reply to File seek

I wouldn't name an input file "OUTPUTFILE", but that doesn't disturb perl.
The seek seeks from EOF, so negative offset is OK, if the file is longer than 500 bytes, so error checking would be better.

However, you are opening OUTPUTFILE and then seeking on CONFIRMEDOUTPUTFILE...

[1nickt]: choroba Understood. I'm wondering about the logic in a cpanfile. If the perl doesn't support threads, it's easy: require MCE. If the perl does support threads, as you say the user has a choice, so require both? Or, assume that irrespective of the choide
[1nickt]: ... choice, the threaded-perl user *probably* wants to use threads, therefore only require threads and leave MCE out, allowing the user to manually install if desired?
[choroba]: just require any of MCE and threads. Not sure if that's possible in the cpanfile, but should be possible early in the Makefile
[1nickt]: The app expects threads as default anyway, right?
[choroba]: that's true
[1nickt]: expects threads *to be* the default
[1nickt]: I think cpanfile can handle the logic. testing now.
