( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Hello all. I am trying to run chmod (and check for failures), using PERL. The chmod returns 1, but the permissions reported are different than the ones reported after using LINUX's chmod. I have used perl -e to show the inconcictency. See below:

> perl -e '$m= chmod (777 , "run.debug.2.log") ; print "$m\n";' 1 > ls -ltr run.debug.2.log -r----x--x 1 ldagan contract 0 Nov 22 08:59 run.debug.2.log > chmod 777 run.debug.2.log > ls -ltr run.debug.2.log -rwxrwxrwx 1 ldagan contract 0 Nov 22 08:59 run.debug.2.log

As can be seen, chmod 777 in PERL gives permsissions "-r----x--x", which is different than the LINUX equivalent. Any ideas?

    [marioroy]: Lady_Aleena Yes, will post something with all the new features. Parallel with few lines of code.
    [marioroy]: Yes, will do for PM. I love PM.
    Lady_Aleena ponders a meditation of her own, but it would be on a far far less important topic.
    [marioroy]: I'm hoping to have a release in about a week's time.

    marioroy MCE isn't important by any means. Just wanted to complete this task. Hobo needed more love and MCE::Shared as well. It wasn't easy at all.
    [marioroy]: Discipulus No supermario. I'm a humbled person within. Just wanted to complete this journey.
