in thread large file issue?

If you're going to try that, try system("blah") or die "$!\n"; instead... || has higher precedence and screws things up.

    Though the precedence thing doesn't matter here.. It's just a single statement, no ambiguity. Plus, system returns 0 (a false value) on success, counter to traditional Perl functions, so you'd need to use and instead of or.
      Yes, please, it is about the only work I get.
