in reply to can PERL just quit?

Your code doesn't compile, because $artheader isn't defined anywhere. I saw that by putting your code in a file called and running perl -c This checks the syntax of the program without actually running it so you can try perl -c on your file without side effects.

Edit: this means you should try and see why your tool doesn't give you any feedback on this error. The compilation error message should be sent to the standard error output, just as any error occuring during runtime.

    Good catch... but a framework running Perl scripts (like eg Tivoli) should be able to report compilation problems...(?)

      I guess it should yes. At least gupr1980 knows the problem is not on perl's side. I'm going to edit my post.

    It's just a typo. I was trying to change artheader to header for this post. No compile errors.
