In Linux:
PolettiX:~# dd if=/dev/zero of=testfile bs=1024 count=1024 1024+0 records in 1024+0 records out 1048576 bytes transferred in 0.019164 seconds (54715967 bytes/sec) PolettiX:~# PolettiX:~# PolettiX:~# mkfs.ext2 testfile mke2fs 1.37 (21-Mar-2005) testfile is not a block special device. Proceed anyway? (y,n) y Filesystem label= OS type: Linux Block size=1024 (log=0) Fragment size=1024 (log=0) 128 inodes, 1024 blocks 51 blocks (4.98%) reserved for the super user First data block=1 1 block group 8192 blocks per group, 8192 fragments per group 128 inodes per group Writing inode tables: done Writing superblocks and filesystem accounting information: done This filesystem will be automatically checked every 27 mounts or 180 days, whichever comes first. Use tune2fs -c or -i to override. PolettiX:~# PolettiX:~# PolettiX:~# mount testfile -o loop /mnt

Now you have a filesystem that will be easy to fill up:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Fatal qw( open close ); chdir '/mnt'; { open my $fh, '>', 'prova.dat'; print {$fh} "ciao\n" for 1 .. 1000000; # close $fh; } print {*STDERR} "should be closed here!\n";

In my system, the final string on STDERR gets printed when the close above is commented; uncommenting the close triggers the fatal error:

Can't close(GLOB(0x814cd4c)): No space left on device at (eval 2) line + 3 main::__ANON__('GLOB(0x814cd4c)') called at ./ line 13

perl -ple'$_=reverse' <<<ti.xittelop@oivalf

Don't fool yourself.

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
