Actually talking un*x, if you open a file, do stuff and at some point rewind it, i would not like the system to close and reopen the descriptor for me; they are many reasons: many passes onthe same file, descriptor sharing with children...etc I would expect the same behaviour for dir handles; this means rewinding makes you look at the same structure again... % perldoc -f rewinddir rewinddir DIRHANDLE Sets the current position to the beginning of the directory for the "readdir" routine on DIRHANDLE. it does not say the handle is closed and then reopened... actually a poor man's rewinddir will do just that... from what you say it seems this time that it is perl on unix that does it wrong (poorly)...this should be filed as a bug

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.
