RE: [perl #115934] Crash in Strawberry Perl 64 5.16
Message ID:
Hi Leon

I am re-sending this in text mode in case HTML mode was causing problems.
Attached is a zip file that contains the mini-dump.  Hopefully this will have the information that you need to look at this.  Unfortunately the application that is crashing is a server side application.  I cannot find a way to narrow down the cause of the failure.  

If this does not help, I can probably find a way to ship you the application that can reproduce the issue.

The report doesn't say much. Can you send a script that shows this behavior (preferably as short as possible, it's hard to analyze a 10K line program for crashes). Or otherwise would you be able to give a stacktrace?


P.S. The text of your email shows up weirdly, both in gmail and the archive (
Judging by the HTML it seems like you're sending email with MS Word, maybe you should consider a proper email client. In particular, the perlbug is preferred for filing bugs, as it will include various pieces of information on your local configuration.
