Hi all!

  I've just been facing a strange problem. Attached you'll find a perl script.
I've been running this script on different machines with different results
(the path to perl has been adapted, of course):

  machinetype	logging daemon	OS			Perl	result

  pc		syslogd		Debian unstable		5.6	doesn't work
  Sun		syslogd		Solaris 2.6		5.004_4	works
  Sun		syslog-ng	Solaris 2.6		5.004_4	doesn't work

Did anybody ever experience problems like that? I'd say it's perl related, but
I'm not sure; any hint or advice is appreciated.

exit 0;
