a problem, but no code backing it up. that's a tough problem to solve. okay, without the code, i can give you help on debugging skills, because you're going to have to do them yourself. here's a partial list:
- start small -- create the smallest script that can recreate the error.
- read the error -- is there something in your environment that is preventing sourcesafe from getting a file? must a directory exist before a get to that directory succeeds?
- add debugging -- print out in perl where you think it'll help. calling the system? print the line first.
- add more debugging -- use sourcesafe's debugging features to see what it's doing.
if you're still stumped, post the code here. some of us may have the (mis)forture of working with sourcesafe. but first, read jeffa's How (Not) To Ask A Question
