( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I get a segmentation fault error when I run this on code containing Switch (big surprise, right?):
$ cat #!/usr/bin/env perl use warnings; use strict; use Switch; use Data::Dumper; my $val = 7; switch ($val) { case 1 { print "number 1" } case [5..10,42] { print "number in list" } else { print "previous case not true" } } print "\n"; $ $ exports Segmentation fault (core dumped) $ $ perl -v This is perl 5, version 22, subversion 0 (v5.22.0) built for x86_64-li +nux etc... $

Strangely, I don't see a core dump file. If I comment out the use Data::Dumper; line, or if I move that line above the use Switch; line, I don't see the segfault error. It looks like if the Switch line is last, we get no errors.

I realize Switch is strongly discouraged, and I will attempt to convince the original code author to get rid of it.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
