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

I have a code snippet and it works exactly as expected:

use strict; use warnings; my $tmpf = 'farms'; my %factories = (farms => "Farmer Brown's"); print "$tmpf\n"; # prints 'farms' print keys( %factories), "\n"; # 'farms' is one of them. print "Is defined" if ( defined $factories{ $tmpf});


farms farms Is defined

How is it different from your code snippet that generates an error message that on the face of it has nothing to do with the snippet? Perhaps you could modify my snippet to demonstrate your error? You could also read I know what I mean. Why don't you?.

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).
