Scott,
Can you give a better description? What exactly is your problem.
I have used the script a number of times with no problems on
different versions of perl across several platforms. What are
you running into thats causing a problem?

Actually the version I downloaded from

was the version with the <MAPDUMP> function and I have the problem.

The new version I have not yet posted uses that <MAPDUMP> function. I just haven't had a time to post it to the NetView web home. Good catch Ray - thanks.

    The problem of empty output is caused by the readline function, a
    seldom used Perl function that apparently behaves differently in
    different versions of Perl. If you replace all instances of
    "readline ($_[0])" with "<MAPDUMP>", the script should work fine
    in any version (or at least version 4 or better, which is all I've
    ever worked with) of Perl.

    Just for the record, I had the same problem and my perl is at 5.6
    on AIX 4.3.3.

I think 5.6 should work. I am on solaris 2.8 and had the issue
    with PERL 5.05. Let me research a bit and I'll post a response here.

    Hi Folks,
    I downloaded the build_location.pl script
    I then ran:
    ovmapdump -v > /tmp/ovmapdump.out
    build_location.pl /tmp/ovmapdump.out > /tmp/location.conf
my ovmapcount.out is about 7026770 bytes
    my location.conf file generated is 141 bytes with only the
    following lines:

    # location.conf file was autogenerated on Friday May 21 17:48:01
    GMT 2004.
    # Script completed processing on Friday May 21 17:48:05 GMT 2004
Q1: Any idea on what I did wrong?
    Q2: Any suggestions?
    Thank You,
    Meyos
