PERL Script on Windows Question

Hi Experts,

As the lazy WinAdmin I am, I thought I could take the report.pl script floating around the Net and run it on Windows using ActivePerl. Upon configuring Sendmail and filepaths for Windows, I was getting the report but with no data.

I have been able to pinpoint this issue to line 48: report_span($report_time, $actual_time, $offset);

If I comment the line out I get data.

My questions are:
* What does the report_span do?
* Is it critical for the script?
* Is there a Windows analog for this?

Thanks,

I will be asking another question regarding this script shortly. Please keep an eye out for it!!
