Perl-stops writing at certain file size

By trishs ·
I have a cgi script that appends inputs to a flat-file. When one of the files reaches about 11K the script stops writing to it (it will quit writing mid-line). Is this a matter of nobody user permissions on the UNIX machine? When I test it on my windows machine, it works fine. Another of the files quits at about 4K. I've tried from different directories, and it doesn't make a difference. Help!

It's possible that there is a character size restriction set on the UNIX machine. I ran into one that stopped at 2500 characters - the hosting company told me they routinely set limits to hold down server space usage. Check with the UNIX admin!

You know what it was???? Even though I mentioned the problem to my boss several days ago and told him I thought it was a system problem, he didn't check the server for me (I'm working remotely). Finally, he did, and the SERVER WAS OUT OF DISK SPACE!!!!! Thanks for your comment anyhow. :-)
