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

elsif expects to get a condition as well. so your example should be

if (!$Ok) { print "x"; } elsif ($some_other <> $condition) { print "y"; }

Not including the condition does indeed make the elsif into a syntax error, and elsf does indeed make it run, but it doesn't make it work.

Oh and please please please don't embed variables in SQL unless you properly untaint them first, and even then only do it if someone is holding a gun to your head ;)

Title:
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.
