( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
could someone shed some light why this program CRASHES the perl interpreter (win7, perl 5.12.4 32bit)
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use feature qw(say switch); use utf8; binmode( STDOUT, ':encoding(cp1252)'); my $pid = fork; die "Failed to fork: $! \n" unless defined $pid; if ($pid) { say 'bk'; wait; exit 0; } say 'bk'; exit 0;
while THIS works just fine:
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use feature qw(say switch); use utf8; my $pid = fork; die "Failed to fork: $! \n" unless defined $pid; if ($pid) { binmode( STDOUT, ':encoding(cp1252)'); say 'bk'; wait; exit 0; } binmode( STDOUT, ':encoding(cp1252)'); say 'bk'; exit 0;
really can't wrap my head around why the first example crashes.
