in thread perl threads and perl versions

aha! the system with the problem is running threads 1.07 and the one that works is 1.81! So should I just assume the problem IS with the threads version? Of course the challenge is which version fixed the problem. any clues on that one? -mark

    The "problem" is that you are trying to use functions that were not a part of the module at that time.

    Any version after 1.59 will not give the error you posted. But I strongly advise going for the latest version available when you upgrade.

      excellent, and I do agree with your comments about going with the latest. only problem is I can't control what people run on their boxes when they run my code nor can I easily dictate. -mark

        Fair enough, but you could use threads 1.67; or whatever version has all the features/fixes you are dependant upon.
