TuXaS has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

hi, can you tell me what is this error message? "can't call method "%s" in empty package "%s"" ? And how to fix this error?

    From the Camel book.

    (F) You called a method correctly, and it correctly indicated a package functioning as a class, but that package doesn't have anything defined in it, let alone methods.


    If you want help fixing the problem you'll have to post some code.

    Check out perldiag. If you're on a Unix machine you can do:

    perldoc perldiag

    ...or you can just type perldiag in the search box above.

    It is a error. To fix the error:
    - Identify the error
    - Figure out how to fix it
    - open the programs source code in a text editor
    - press the keys on the computers key board until the error is gone - repeat if neccessary
    :P
      lol

[ambrus]: Our spam filter rules disallow links to certain domains, and some suspicious pharses that have appeared in previous spam advertising cheap online whatevers.
[LanX]: some servers were lagging today, so I suppose the root cause
[LanX]: ambrus no recent patches
[Petroza]: no i haven't posted anything before. It was a more or less long question with a specific issue. I did post a title and the links i added where only part of the element i was searching within the code (so no purpose other than the question itself).
[1nickt]: Petroza can you go back in your browser to the preview screen, redact the links, and try to submit again?
[LanX]: copy and paste the text into your Petroza's scratchpad please
[Petroza]: yes I'll do that. instead of the url I'll write "link"
[LanX]: darn my pc is restarting for updates
