Anointed ones,

I have a question concerning using win32::tieRegistry. I have a little script that just pokes into the registry and grabs the application path. It works ok, but it whines a bit at the end. See below:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use Win32::TieRegistry ( Delimiter=>"/" ); my $regString = $Registry->{'LMachine/Software/Microsoft/Windows/Curre +ntVersion/App Paths/ProMassXcali.exe//'}; use File::Basename; my($basename, $AppPath, $suffix) = fileparse("$regString",'\..*'); print "$AppPath\n";

Here's the error message that it spits out at the end.

(in cleanup) Can't call method "FETCH" on an undefined value at C:/Perl5 61/site/lib/Win32/ line 1486 during global destruction.

Is there something wrong with the way I'm doing this? I'm running win2k with Perl 5.6.1 build 626 from ActiveState.


#!/usr/bin/perl -w $camel = $hump do { theHumpty($camel); }

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
