Hello Phil,

It's good to hear from you.  Would you be interested in taking updates
to the AFS-Command CPAN distribution?  Andrew and I have made several
fixes for our use, and have recently made the patches available on


The fixes/updates are:

* handle new extra 'fs examine' line
* fix warning message: minimum Perl version syntax
* fix for vos restore -filterout option: avoid putting stderr into the dump stream
* handle the vos examine -format flag

Take care,
