( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
a humble dead-set newbie looks for sandles to kiss...
the if statement in the while loop is fooled by white space that apears infron of some of the array elements after they have been passed though the web server. i tried stripping these but it broke other parts of my code.
what's a newbie freindly way to ignore white space in the array elements my if??

$i=0; my $lic_number; while ($staff[$i*3]){ if (($staff[$i*3+$staff_last] eq $names[0]) && ($staff[$i*3+$staff +_first] eq $names[1])){ do some stuff... last; } $i++; }

your humble novice,
meeple (who is comming to terms with the limitations of the llama book.. i think i need a camel)

beware the farmers.

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.
