( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
This may be more of a unix question than perl question, but here goes. I have two different programs that do the same thing,
$mod = `ls -l $db`;
In one program, I get for $mod:
-rw-r--r-- 1 hroberts 36761119 May 30 01:07 /usr/ncbi/blast/db/temp_ +big/patntdir/patnt.nsq
while in another I get:
-rw-r--r-- 1 hroberts staff 36761119 May 30 01:07 /usr/ncbi/blast +/db/temp_big/patntdir/patnt.nsq
Both programs are run as the same user. How in the world does one program get the field for group ownership (staff), and not the other??? This is on Solaris 2.6.

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.
