"Why 'eval' this..."

Good question. Because:

  1. I'm paranoid
  2. I didn't think
  3. I was in a hurry

Perhaps all items match ;-)

My posts aren't correct: it would only make (some) sense to eval if there is a die in the block that sets $@ (perhaps something wrong with $command, like a non-existing file etc). But this could be also trapped before with a file test operator...a.s.o

I just wanted to say that you forgot to right shift, as you already noticed. That would have been enough. Sorry :-(


To tell the truth: from time to time i need to take a look again at Perl documentation about this issues. I think it can be tricky - depending on the situation. And even if it isn't really tricky, i get a little confused about it from time to time...

Best regards, Karl

[Corion]: Hi James!
[james28909]: I looked through the docs, and see that PerlApp::exe() is suppose to return this information but whenever i try to use this, i get the error "Undefined subroutine &PerlApp::exe called"
[james28909]: i just want to verify the integrity of the executables name each time it is run.
[Corion]: Weird. this documentation says what you say.
[Corion]: I assume you are experiencing this with your packaged program. Maybe also include in the packaging list?
[james28909]: has anyone else run into this problem? i have tried searching but have not returned many results
[james28909]: ah, good idea.
[Corion]: What does print $PerlApp::VERSION output?
