I liked your idea of using a data stucture of references, after all, I was trying to do something similar from the start, but my lack of Perl skill got in the way. Anyway, I put it into my code and there was a problem, but I fixed it by writing $actions[$menu-1]
instead of $actions[$menu]
since the options in the menu number from 1 to 5 while the elements of array @actions
number from 0 to 4. However, I still get the following error:
Can't use string ("\&addwant") as a subroutine ref while "strict refs" in use at mybooks.pl line 50, <STDIN> chunk 1.
Is there any way to fix this other than by not using strict?
