    Please stop creating new threads for the same problem. Stay in one thread, that makes it much easier for everyone willing to help.

    And by the way, this is not a perl error. Perl isn't even reporting it. See find.


    Today I will gladly share my knowledge and experience, for there are no sweeter words than "I told you so". ;-)
