Subject PerlIOAPR_tell problem found
Date Tue, 18 Dec 2001 05:23:46 GMT
the problem is that since we rip out largefile flags on the modperl side,
Off_t is 4 bytes (16 bit int), whereas on the perl side Off_t is 8 bytes
(64 bit int).  for testing, add the largefile flags (as reported by
perl -V:ccflags_uselargefiles) like the diff below.
we could solve this on the modperl side by re-enabling largefile flags for
apr_perlio.c only.  but then when Apache::PerlIO gets implemented (to
replace tie *STD{IN,OUT}), we cannot since it will change the sizeof
request_rec.  if perl were to change to something that is always 64 bit
int (like NV), we'd be ok in both cases (i think).
