( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
The Linux /proc fs is pretty nice because all of the data there (or what I found in there) is ascii readable. However, anyone know how to parse out the binary data in the Solaris /proc fs? I have never ever ever done any kind of parsing of data (non-ascii) in my life and while I know the basic I idea behind it I have no idea how to do it in Perl (or any other language for that matter :). Perhaps a few pointers? I have a feeling that it can be done with the '&' bitwise operator (I saw a script that did it that way one time) but I believe you need the offset for that to work?? I dunno. Any help on this subject would be quite appreciated.
