in thread Supressing zero values in formatted reports

Hmm this isn't an error. It's a warning.

From perldiag: Argument "%s" isn't numeric%s

(W) The indicated string was fed as an argument to an operator that expected a numeric value instead. If you're fortunate the message will identify which operator was so unfortunate.

This means although the warning is displayed your program should run normally.

    Correct. Warning. Sorry. However it still prints a zero in the spots that I want blank.
      Hmm, now i reached the end of science (at least to my knowledge) so let's start with the voodoo (aka blind guessing):

      • I know there's an int($foo) function that returns the integer part of a variable. Maybe there is something similar for strings?
      • Have u tried to use another character instead of a blank? something like - or . ?
      As I said both is just vlind guessing and will propably not work. Your program seems to think that right at this place there has to be a number. I don't know why it does this, but maybe some other monk can bring some clarification to this?

      greetings

    Correct, I'll rephrase that to Warning, and continue to comment that it still does not suppress zero values.

[atcroft]: james28909: Make both hands into fists, place them together (with thumbs concealed), and every knuckle is a month (starting with Jan.) has 31 days, every dip (between knuckles) does not....
[atcroft]: (And Feb. is the odd case, because it is 28, unless it is a year divisible by 4, or if it is divisible by both 100 and 400 (at which point it is 29).)
[james28909]: i know but scroll through your calendar on your computer.
[james28909]: i thiught you were going to say make both hands into a fist and puch yourself in the face
[atcroft]: .oO(Sorry, I probably should have said take two normal hands....)
[atcroft]: james28909: No, unless you are a politician, I wouldn't say that (and even if you are, I still probably wouldn't say that).
[james28909]: i mean how hard can it be? its just subtracting days lol
[atcroft]: james28909: What about October 5, 1582?
[stevieb]: atcroft: "Make both hands into fists..."... is something my Ma taught me in our native lang, but I was to ignorant and young to pay attention. Thanks for that :)
[atcroft]: stevieb: Sad to say that I only recently learned that particular trick, but I have since found it very useful.... :)
