There is a bug in FreeBSD'sC<readdir_r> function in versions 4.5 and earlier that can cause a SEGV whenreading large directories. A patch for FreeBSD libc is available(see http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=misc/30631 )which has been integrated into FreeBSD 4.6.=head2 $^X doesn't always contain a full path in FreeBSDperl 5.8.0 sets C<$^X> where possible to a full path by asking the operatingsystem. On FreeBSD the full path of the perl interpreter is found by readingthe symlink F</proc/curproc/file>. FreeBSD has a bug where reading thissymlink sometimes returns an incorrect value(see http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=35703 ).In these cases perl will fall back to the old behaviour of using C'sargv value for C<$^X>.=head1 AUTHORNicholas Clark <firstname.lastname@example.org>, collating wisdom supplied by Slaven Rezicand Tim Bunce.Please report any errors, updates, or suggestions to F<email@example.com>.
