Description Al Gifford 2003-08-11 18:05:21 UTC
If too many warning messages are generated by a script apache hangs...

Steps to reproduce...
1. Run the following script from the command line which generates 
uninitialized variable warnings...Everything works fine...
2. Run the same script as a CGI program and the server hangs...
3. Change the number of iterations to a lower number (like 5) and run 
again...Everything works fine...

Conclusion:  If the script generates too many warnings apache hangs

#!/usr/bin/perl -w

print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
for(0 .. 100){
        print "yada: $id<br>\n";

Has anyone seen this before?  (Yes I know about use strict, but that would not 
expose the problem now would it?)
Comment 1 Al Gifford 2003-08-11 19:27:04 UTC
Oh, I almost forgot...You can also turn off warning messages by using the -X 
option and that will suppress warning messages and stop the script from 

#!/usr/bin/perl -X

This is not a solution, but a temporary work around...

Comment 2 Al Gifford 2003-08-11 19:32:51 UTC
You can use

#!/bin/perl -X

to suppress warnings.  This is a work around but does not fix the bug.
