In what way could this affect me? I just have to compare the inode numbers (and device numbers, as you pointed out), as they are returned from stat,isn't it?

If your perl doesn't support 64 bits inodes, stat will fail in weird ways; in the worst case, it could return erroneous inodes and wrongly state different files as the same.

[perldigious]: Also coincidentally, I'm currently in the middle of a winter storm that has dropped 1 foot of snow and is expected to drop another. I might have to adapt this for customers/vendors who come visit and put it at the beggining of every presentation I give.

[stevieb]: perldigious: video near our hq in Montreal. Here in Calgary, it's -28c... we've only got 3" of snow so far, but there are several feet in the mountains already
[perldigious]: Snowshoeing time stevieb? I need to buy a pair so I can walk my German Shepherd properly through the country.
[stevieb]: yeah, I snowshoe a fair amount in the mountains. I also use spikes similar to these very often as well
