( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hi all,
I have a doubt, I am posting my code here.
#!/usr/bin/perl $type = $ARGV[0]; $argument = $ARGV[1]; if( $type eq 'job' || $type eq 'member' || $type eq 'file' ) { print "yes..."; } else { print "The parameters for this program are as follows: [job/member/fil +e] [jobnumber/membernumber/filename]"; die; }

or in else condition shall I use
else { print "The parameters for this program are as follows: [job/member/fil +e] [jobnumber/membernumber/filename]"; exit; }

Which one is the best way? (Memory management point of view).

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