I'm not able to replicate your error; however, there are a few errors/potential errors in your code (at least as written).

In the array of keywords, the comma is wrong unless you mean it to be part of the pattern. "use warnings" catches this.

If you're using lexical variables, $x and @a need a "my" in front of them when declared. "use strict" catches this.

Here's the code with these corrections, and with strict and warnings turned on. It works on my system, but then again, so does the uncorrected code.

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; my @a = qw(xyz uvw tid bnjuw); foreach my $k ( @a) { my $name = $k."\*"; my $x = `find . -name "$name" -print`; }
for(split(" ","tsuJ rehtonA lreP rekcaH")){print reverse . " "}print "\b.\n";

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
