see, it's not really Dying. The problem is that it's NOT dying. It works great to a point.
It runs. It sits there, and it prints out that it's finding 'LINE1' then it waits, then 'LINE2' ... Because in my code you see I have it printing the line that it pulls before passing it on.
Is in the read_smdr. The problem is, if I, for instance, chop the data, the return is empty. Even though if I print $line, it shows the full 80 character line. If I pass it to another program, as I have in the code here:
the new program reports from it's args the first line perfect:
from the command in parse_smdr that says:
Like it's supposed to.
Then the second iteration of READ, it'll pass empty string. No matter what. Even if you just run a standard perl command, the command returns as if it was passed an empty variable....
it's VERY bizzarre.
Mind you, that the FIRST TIME the while loop in read_smdr runs it works PERFECT...
