in thread split problem

There must be something else the issue here, as if you remove all of the trailing tabs from the string, it works fine on all versions of perl I have installed currently.


use warnings; use strict; my $value = "A\tB\tC\tD\tE\tF"; my @flds = split(/\t/, $value); $flds[16] = undef; $flds[8] = 0; print scalar @flds; __END__ 17


use warnings; use strict; my $value = "A\tB\tC\tD\tE\tF\t\t\t\t\t\t"; my @flds = split(/\t/, $value); $flds[16] = undef; $flds[8] = 0;

    Use Devel::Peek with working/nonworking to see the difference

    Sounds like a bug in perl

    #!/usr/bin/perl -- use strict; use warnings; use Devel::Peek qw/ Dump /; eval { my $value = "A\tB\tC\tD\tE\tF"; my @flds = split(/\t/, $value); $flds[16] = undef; $flds[8] = 0; Dump( \@flds ); print scalar @flds, "\n", '#'x5,"\n"; 1; } or warn $@; eval { my $value = "A\tB\tC\tD\tE\tF\t\t\t\t\t\t"; my @flds = split(/\t/, $value); Dump( \@flds ); $flds[16] = undef; $flds[8] = 0; print scalar @flds, "\n", '#'x5,"\n"; 1; } or warn $@; __END__

    I've updated my post. The part about "past the end of the array" was completely wrong and is now stricken.

    I didn't originally try without the trailing tabs. I have now done so and it works fine for me too.
