    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
