OK, so I got GDBM_File working, sort of, using MinGW.
Now the problem is ... GDBM_File works fine with a NEW data file, but it errors out trying to access the old data file:
couldn't open DBM: Bad file descriptor at E:\Data\webroot\cgi-bin\BUdepend\Delete.pl line 9.
Note that I'm running this simple little test script from the command line (ultimately the whole thing does run as a CGI).
Line 9 is just the tie() call:
tie(%bu, 'GDBM_File', 'BUdepend.dat' , &GDBM_WRCREAT, 0666) or die "couldn't open DBM: $!";
I'm pretty sure the DBM file is not corrupted, it's a clean copy from a backup from the old system. I'm pretty sure there's no permissions problem, as "-w" and "open '<'" work just fine, and the permissions look OK when I check them.
The one thing I don't know is what version of GDBM was used on the old system, but it was only two years old, and surely any changes wouldn't have backwards compatibility issues for data files?
