----------------------------------------------------------------- [Please enter your report here] This may be more appropriate for the ActiveState folks, so I will send this to them as well, when I find an appropriate email address. Running Perl5.005_03, build 517 on a Windows 95 box, I get an error when running the following code: d:\my_perl>perl -Mstrict open FH, "+<file" or die "cannot open file: $!"; truncate FH, 0; close FH; Bareword "FH" not allowed while "strict subs" in use at - line 2. Execution of - aborted due to compilation errors. I don't know what to make of that, other than it being a bug. The code works perfectly fine in Perl 5.005_02 on the Unix box I'm currently on.
