If you find an architecture on which you need to set this manually, please report it to the developers. This is supposed to be set automatically on those system which need it. If it isn't, it's a bug.

    Here is my test prog :-
    use strict; use File::Find; my $dir = shift; my ($with, $without); print "Counting files in $dir\n"; # This is the default on Linux $File::Find::dont_use_nlink = 0; find(sub { $without++ }, $dir); $File::Find::dont_use_nlink = 1; find(sub { $with++ }, $dir); print "With \$File::Find::dont_use_nlink = 0: $without files found\n"; print "With \$File::Find::dont_use_nlink = 1: $with files found\n";
    I ran this on a mounted iso9660 disc like this (note if the disc has RockRidge extensions then it works properly!) :-
    $ ./ /mnt/cdrom 
    Counting files in /mnt/cdrom
    With $File::Find::dont_use_nlink = 0: 29 files found
    With $File::Find::dont_use_nlink = 1: 1300 files found
    This was on Linux 2.2.17 with perl 5.00503 with the standard File::Find that comes with the distribution

    I agree with tye's comment here - $File::Find::dont_use_nlink should be 1 on all platforms - the slowdown isn't worth the incompatibilities.
