in thread Math::Pari patch for 5.10.0

rsync -avz rsync://public.activestate.com/perl-current/.

Please read the rsync manual, you want

rsync -avz rsync://public.activestate.com/perl-current/ .

Note the space before the dot.

    Please read the rsync manual

    Why should I bother doing that when 'perldoc perlhack' explicitly told me what I had to run ?

    (Actually, the '.' you quoted from my post was just a "full stop" - not part of the command that I actually ran.) Needless to say, when I run the command exactly as you suggested it works fine :-) I can now see that the command I ran simply downloaded the list of files - but not the actual files, themselves. The (what-I-presume-to-be-successful) download terminates with:
    . . x2p/util.c x2p/util.h x2p/walk.c rsync: failed to set permissions on "/cygdrive/c/_32/rsync/.": Permiss +ion denied (13) sent 96831 bytes received 17417748 bytes 48855.17 bytes/sec total size is 64828778 speedup is 3.70 rsync error: some files could not be transferred (code 23) at /home/la +po/packaging/tmp/rsync-2.6.6/main.c(1173)
    Not sure of the effect of that error message - I'll find out tomorrow when I try to build perl-5.11.0 (and Math-Pari, if perl-5.11.0 builds ok) - and I'll report back. It's now nearly 1.30am over here (and I was up at 3am yesterday morning) ... 7.5 hours of shit is enough for me for one night :-)

    Thanks to ysth, BrowserUk and haoess.

    Cheers,
    Rob

[Corion]: ambrus: Most of our "automation" is tied to process exit codes and a shell pipeline :-\
[LanX]: ... a week later they realized that one of the databases - which recorded how much the other banks due to this bank - was not correctly plugged
[ambrus]: Corion: I have no problem with exit codes and shell pipeline. My problem is that the current process requires a lot of manual intervention from me, including editing the source codes.
[ambrus]: (Also a lot of manual intervention by two or three other co-workers, who do other parts of the process.)
[ambrus]: Some of the manual part is unavoidable, but not all.
[choroba]: LanX was there a way to recover the numbers from the remaining information?
[Corion]: LanX: Ow ;)
Discipulus manual work: i just tell the same to my boss: every time the quick solution is to assign some manual data entry task to my group.. because we have not direct access to many databases here..
[LanX]: point is: in high speed trade each bank has to remember what he has to get from the others... so dresdner got billed for losses but couldn't claim gains
