I am stumped by the behaviour of file functions on a windows NT
Server I am using. Basically, I can open a file for reading, but
I cannot append to a file. I am using the absolute path
in my open statement. I have also tried to use the
binmode() function, to no avail. Thus my code looks something like:
$somestuff = "This is a new line for my data file";
$filename = "d:/foo/bar/myfile.dat";
open (DATA,">>$filename") || die("Cannot Open Database File");
print DATA $somestuff;
This code dies and gives me my "Cannot open database file" error
I also tried to use the path d:\\foo\\bar\\myfile.dat
Does anymonk know what is the problem? Is it a permissions
issue? Unfortunately, I am not the administrator of this server!
