in thread Should I worry about "Inappropriate ioctl for device"?

... [why would I] get a message about inappropriate use of ioctl in one script but not another.

Perhaps because $! is being used inappropriately in one script and not in the other. Beyond that, I must confess that I'm confused about the current state of your code and can say no more.

    Everyone is confused by my code in general. I'm used to it,

    My OS is Debian 10 (Buster); my perl versions are 5.28.1 local and 5.16.3 or 5.30.0 on web host depending on the shebang.

    No matter how hysterical I get, my problems are not time sensitive. So, relax, have a cookie, and a very nice day!

      Now you mention it, been there, done that too. :)
