Bad File Descriptors Gone Wildby chaoticset (Chaplain)
|on Nov 04, 2001 at 02:07 UTC||Need Help??|
chaoticset has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Okay, that's a shameless attempt to tie this post to those stupid 'gone wild' videos. But, seriously, this has to do with bad file descriptors.
In my CGI script, I open a couple different files a couple different ways, and I created subroutines for these openings and closings.
produces this output at the end of all the HTML that pops out:
Error Closing Stock File: Bad file descriptor
I already looked at this but it doesn't seem to be the same problem, because I'm not trying to open a directory.
I'm pretty much just confused about this. Am I opening the file incorrectly somehow?
Thank you for your time in advance.
Update: Found my error. I had closed STOCK twice. I didn't really know what could produce that error.
