( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Which seems odd, considering that that module is not doing anything fancy - just a bit of socket reading.

Why? Its just a regular everyday most common of warnings Use of uninitialized value

Apart from the fact that serial communications arent working, the "uninitialized value" error seems out-of place for such a popular module.

Why? You can give "uninitialized value" to pretty much everything, its very basic

Also, for "such a popular module" it hasn't been updated since 2010

2010 is when perl 5.12 came out. since then we've had 5.14, 5.16, 5.18, and 5.20, and 5.22 is about to be released

The module uses strict+warnings, and new versions of perl can introduce new warnings

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.
