Hi Mark, thanks for the reply.  I'm running perl v5.8.0.  The machine is 
Red Hat Linux 8.0 and uname -a looks like:
Linux stump 2.4.20-28.8 #1 Thu Dec 18 12:53:39 EST 2003 i686 i686 i386 

Is it possible that the code is not valid for 5.8.0 but is valid on a 
newer version of perl?  They seemed like real, live mistakes to me but 
it's possible that a newer perl treats them as valid.

I know it's a pretty old OS so upgrading to a more modern CentOS or 
something is definitely an option... I probably put too much trust in 
the "make test" of each module to let me know if something is 

Thanks again.
