in thread [solved] File::Spec tmpdir() is behaving wrongly in Windows7

Hi sundialsvc4

To avoid confusion, I set the environment variable SET TMPDIR=C:\Temp and then ran the perl code. Still I get the wrong results.
C:\Temp is avilable with full permission to all users.
I have created perlApp (Active State based) exe and executed in other machines, I face the same isse with File::Spec.
What I understand with all the monks post is, it is File::Spec issue. I will reinstall perl freshly and try again.



Thanks & Regards,

    Hi sundialsvc4

    Great. Thanks for your support. Issue is solved. Looks like my C:\Temp was created by system, though it exists with write permission some how perl is not getting permission to work in it. So I have set Temp dir in my local account like below,

    C:\> SET TMPDIR=C:\Users\bakki\AppData\Local\Temp C:\> perl -MFile::Spec -e "print File::Spec->tmpdir();" C:\Users\bakki\AppData\Local\Temp

    Now everything work. Actually, it the default Temp set by windows for every user, I have modified it to point to System temp which is wrong.

    Thanks & Regards,

[jdporter]: one prog I have has a UI which allows to input a bit mask
[jdporter]: currently it expects the bitmask to be in the form of a hex number, e.g. 0x0101
[jdporter]: but I'd like to let the user specify it as individual bits, i.e. 0b0000000100000001
[jdporter]: there is no bit/binary equivalent of hex, right?
[jdporter]: I guess that the most direct way of doing it is with some magical incantation involving unpack or whatever
[jdporter]: let me google that for me ;-)
[jdporter]: hex points explicitly to oct, which does the job. :-D
[jdporter]: omg, I f love Perl!
[choroba]: say unpack 'H*', pack 'B*', $mask =~ /0b([01]+)/;
