    Hello,

    I tried to do a search of this and haven't been able to find anything related to an issue we maybe facing with one of our servers.

    we are planning to upgrade one of our servers from perl V.5.6.1 to 5.8.1 and have found out there is a problem with perl 5.8.1 and DBM files using the .db extension. serval accounts on this server use a particular shopping cart that utilizes DBM files to store data. This is the basic code that opens, closes, add, updates,..etc the DBM files:
    Code:
      dbmopen(%DB,$datafile, 0666) || die $!;
      # do stuff here
     dbmclose(%DB) || die $!;
    
    My question is, if we upgrade perl, does any one know of a quick way to fix this problem quickly so our accounts don't run into problems with their perl carts that utilize these DBM files ??

    TIA
    Mickalo
