SOLVED: CORE::stat() doesn't appear to be the same as statby Bloodnok (Vicar)
|on Sep 10, 2018 at 14:01 UTC||Need Help??|
Bloodnok has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Long time, no speak ... I've been away on Python (;-(() & Ruby (:-))) sabbaticals.
Anyways, my question is, I think, a simple one - why does running the command
perl -e 'print \&stat, \&CORE::stat; package CORE; print \&stat'
i.e. given that stat() is ostensibly a part of the CORE package (as partially shown above), what are the/any sound reason(s) for the differences between them (\&stat & \&CORE::stat) (using perl 5.26.1 on Ubuntu 18.04) ??
Many thanx in advance for your insights.
Very many thanx for your replies - so the upshot is RTFM (but more closely).
A user level that continues to overstate my experience :-))
