in thread File::CounterFile problems and hashes

Another problem.

$counter = File::CounterFile->new("./msgid", "1"); $id = $counter->value(); $filename = "pagemsg".$id;
I get a "Bad counter magic" error when the value is accessed. Am I accessing the counter file properly?

    i'm having trouble installing File::CounterFile. 'nmake test' is barfing badly on perl 5.6.1 build 626 for MSWin32. i get a 'bad counter magic' error from 't/basic.t'. until this is resolved, i can't help you debug File::CounterFile any more. perhaps i'll get a chance to look at the module later this week.

    According to the File::CounterFile code unless the first line of the counter file is #COUNTER-1.0 you'll get the Bad counter magic error. Was the counter file created by File::CounterFile? If not remove the existing file and let the module do the rest.
