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

Though you are using strncpy(), your string is not null-terminated. (update: to quote from the docs for strncpy on my machine "if there is no null byte among the first n bytes of src, the result will not be null-terminated.") To fix this probably you can do one of the following:

  • Add a date[8] = '\0'; line.
  • Use newSVpvn(date,8) to create a string of a specific length.

I would note that your current use of newSVpvf() should be replaced with newSVpv(date,0) or similar, to prevent odd behavior and/or major security flaws from popping up if your data contains %s. (Or, at least, to prevent you from getting in to the habit of coding that way for when it would matter.)

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
