Re: Diff between 'print POSIX::cuserid' and 'use POSIX; print cuserid'

in reply to Diff between 'print POSIX::cuserid' and 'use POSIX; print cuserid'

In your first example, you did a use POSIX; in the second, you did not. Why?

Without loading POSIX you won't be able to call a function like POSIX::cuserid.

Enable strictwarnings and see yourself what happens:
$ perl -wE 'say POSIX::cuserid' Name "POSIX::cuserid" used only once: possible typo at -e line 1. say() on unopened filehandle cuserid at -e line 1.
But with loading POSIX:
$ perl -MPOSIX -wE 'say POSIX::cuserid' linuxer

Updates

  • replaced strict with warnings; removed strict from code examples; the warning is the crucial part.

    Thanks, yes, so in #2 POSIX isn't loaded, so perl -e 'print POSIX::cuserid' should return nothing, actually. That's the answer. There is something odd about this user's environment that is causing it to print his username. In *my* environment, and root's, it behaves the way it is supposed to. Not going to investigate further.

[Lady_Aleena]: File::Find doesn't have a simple sub wanted example, like get the name of the file.
[Discipulus]: there is also find2perl with your perl installation
[Discipulus]: and in the wanted sub you just calculate the duretion and add it the total, stop
[shmem]: sub wanted { push @files, $File::Find::name if $File::Find::name =~/\.mp3$/ }
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, that is understandable! The two examples in File::Find don't make sense to me on a quick glance.
