Description André Lemos 2004-04-23 00:50:40 UTC
I know this sounds strange, but I believe that the only thing that I've updated recently was fcron, and now every 5 minutes I get the following error for my mrtg scripts:

Number found where operator expected at /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.2/IO/Socket/ line 231, near "9 1"
        (Missing operator before  1?)
syntax error at /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.2/IO/Socket/ line 231, near "9 1"

etc etc.... I know it looks like a perl issue, but I don't believe I have updated in a while.

what's on line 231 of

perl 5.8.3 i have: 
    return $sock->SUPER::bind(@_ == 1 ? shift : pack_sockaddr_in(@_))

so.. if you have =9 1 that would be bad.
Comment 2 André Lemos 2004-04-23 13:47:26 UTC
find /usr -name ""

Line 231
return $sock->SUPER::bind(@_ =9 1 ? shift : pack_sockaddr_in(@_))

I've changed my file so that it looks like yours, and now mrtg works again...

WHAT GIVES? what might have changed that? I wasn't, that's for sure..

This falls into the realm of "weird, unreproducable". Sorry we couldn't help more, nothing in the ebuild for IO::Socket::INET would do something like this and can't reproduce this.
