Hi all,

Solaris 10
Sun Studio Compiler 12
ruby 1.8.6 (2007-09-24 patchlevel 111) [sparc-solaris2.10]
mechanize 0.6.10
rubygems 0.9.4

$CC => cc
$CFLAGS => -g -dalign -fns -xbuiltin=%all -xlibmil -xtarget=ultra2e -
xO5
-xipo -xarch=sparc

I'm hitting a core dump with the following program. It works fine when
I
run it from the command line, but when run via cron it dumps core.
Here's the program in its entirety:

# rf_downloads.rb
#!/usr/local/bin/ruby
require 'rubygems'
require 'mechanize'

agent = WWW::Mechanize.new
body = agent.get('http://rubyforge.org/top/toplist.php?
type=downloads').body

regex = /<a href="\/projects\/\w+?\/">(.*?)<\/a>.*?(\d+)/
file  = "Rubyforge_Downloads_" + Time.now.strftime("%d_%b_%Y")
fh    = File.open(file, 'w')

body.split("\n").each{ |line|
    if m = regex.match(line)
       project   = m.captures[0].ljust(40)
       downloads = m.captures[1]
       fh.puts "#{project} #{downloads}"
    end
}

fh.close
# end rf_downloads.rb

Here's the stack info.

The only thing unusual about my system that I can think of offhand is
that my hostname is "unknown".

If there's any other info I can provide from the core file please let
me
know (and also let me know how to get it - I'm not that familiar with
debugging core files).

Regards,

Dan
