Caching problem?by viffer (Beadle)
|on Mar 16, 2010 at 09:18 UTC||Need Help??|
viffer has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
First post - please don't bite too hard.
I've read what I can and googled till I'm blue in the face but can't find what I'm looking for. I'm relatively new to Perl so please bear with me.
I've written a script which enables people to change dates on line.
I take the data they've entered, compare it to the existing file, then either write the existing record or the amendments to a new file.
Having done then I delete the original file, rename the new file to that of the original and display the data on the screen.
When I look in the file it has the data written correctly, but what displays is the data in the original file - as though it's displaying what's in the cache.
So my question (rather long windedly is) is there an EASY method of clearing the cache or might it be something else?
I'm happy to post the code (and give you all a laugh at my expense) but it's rather large. I do uses system rm commands rather than perl MOVE commands but I can't see that would make much difference given that the contents of the file I'm reading from are correct.Appreciate any time any of you spend helping me.
