in reply to File::stat's size method returns negative values

Ok, after a lot of searching/reading I finally sent an email to my local (winnipeg) perl mongers group and they mentioned that Perl 5.8 from ActiveState supports large files "out of the box". I was using 5.6.1 from AS previously so I installed the new version and the modules I needed, and VOILA! I can now properly stat files larger than 2GB in Perl.

Thanks,
djw
