[rrd-users] extract command line options used to create an RRD file

   I have written a script to export to file the creation info as per  
"Smokeping::RRDtools::info2create($file)" but when I read the data  
back in I get an error, something like:
can't parse argument 'SCALAR(0x800f368d0)'
The variable being passed to RRDs::create is ARRAY(0x800f740d8).

I have also tested this putting the argument in hard coded to the RRD  
create, like:

RRDs::create('/tmp/database.rrd', "ARRAY(0x800f740d8)");

Gives same error as above.


RRDs::create('/tmp/database.rrd', @"ARRAY(0x800f740d8)");

Gives some nasty perl errors, Im a bit confused by the syntax that  
does work actually. From the example in the RRDs module, it uses  
@$create. I dont use perl much, but that seems a strange one. Anyone  
help me out?

thanks Andy.
