Re: error in printing output of Data::Dumper to file

in reply to error in printing output of Data::Dumper to file

It worked for me also (Perl v5.16.2). It would be helpful if you could post some of the surrounding code.

Lexical variables are preferred to bareword filehandles.

open my $fh5, ">>", "tagfile1" or die "Error: $!\n";

You may want to take a look at perldebtut and use the debugger to make sure your code is actually reaching the open / print statements as suggested by quester.

And as always,

use strict; use warnings;

[Corion]: I think I should define a set of (say) five projects through which I rotate from time to time, just to prevent myself from being bored/annoyed by the problems they get stuck in ;)
[marto]: Corion, not bringing the kids would make it ideal :P
[marto]: a suggestion, have one project in the list that isn't programming/perl related
[Corion]: marto: Yeah, things are more parent-friendly the way they are ;))
[marto]: some hardware/makey thing
[Corion]: marto: Ah, I'm currently drifting to that again, over"painting" (well with Inkscape) one of my photographs and thinking about vectorizing some other images ...
[marto]: Corion, yes something 'artistic', so that or some music. Even combine some things, build a musical instrument :)
[Corion]: marto: Naah, I'm avoiding that rabbit hole ;) Sometimes I think of using Perl to create MIDI to generate music, or at least the harmonies to which I could jam, but then that would eat even more into available time ;-))
