in thread trouble parsing log file...

The while (<DATA>){ line needs to read
while (<LOG>){

<DATA> file handle is a "special" one that points to the bit in your script following the __DATA__ marker. This is useful to demonstrate the data associated with code in a forum like this.

As suggested by others, it is good practice to close your file handle once you are finished with it.

close LOG;

[ambrus]: davies: that option is the default. and it's not really "force", it just hides the button.
[marto]: yes, not reading the errors displayed has been a cause of this type of report in the past
[nysus]: Ambrus, ah. I think that was the problem. I'll try. Thanks!
[davies]: Ambrus: you've missed it by a couple of weeks, but consider next year's London Perl Workshop.
