Re: When can the character length of a Perl Scalar become an issue?

in reply to When can the character length of a Perl Scalar become an issue?

According to perldata, "a scalar is a single string (of any size, limited only by the available memory), number, or a reference to something". So the length of your XML element is not constrained by any arbitrary limit in Perl's scalar variables.

The string truncation must therefore be due to some other cause. As suggested by marto, you will likely need to show us code to get further help.

    Dear Philip Bailey

    Better be prepared ... soon eyepops will be showing up and taking bets on your sanctification.

    Only 30 points left to go, but you should post more often than every 2 month in average! ;)

    Cheers Rolf

    PS: I like your work, especially "Easy Lover" with Phil Collins... ;-P

      Yes, it's been a slow climb to (nearly) sainthood, and I probably should post more!

      Thanks for remembering the singing career of my namesake!

        Challenge accepted! philipbailey, while astounded by your breathtaking four-octave vocal range and distinctive falsetto register, I admire your consistency and perseverance at Perl Monks even more ... and predict you'll reach coveted Sainthood here at 12:00 UTC on Sep 24 2023, after a heroic odyssey of fifteen years and eight months.

        LanX, here's your chance to win a second Nostradamus prize, just one week after your first. :)
