Apaches Hanging

| | Comments (1)

When I try to print high-bit data to STDERR from mod_perl 1.x and perl 5.10.0 -- sometimes, not always -- the process hangs and sucks up 100% CPU. I wonder if updating perl to 5.10.1 might help. use.perl.orgslashdot.org


Hey, please post an update if you figure that out. I haven't encountered that problem yet, but I'm about to deploy a server for $work running that same combo.

BTW, when you say high-bit data, you mean < 8-bit chars/non-ascii right? (shouldn't be a problem in the codebase I'm concerned with, but you never know)
