in reply to Error msg "requires explicit package name"

Copy-and-paste the entire program up to and including line 16 here for us to examine.

The error message you report sometimes occurs if there is a punctuation error in a preceeding line.

[marioroy]: LA my @music_times = qx(find \$HOME/Music/ Albums -type f -iname \'*.mp3\' -exec mp3info -p \"%S\\n\" {} \\;);
[marioroy]: Only 2 backslash \\n
[marioroy]: LA no space before Albums
[Lady_Aleena]: Good guh! I think I will use File::Find when working in perl. That is too many toothpicks.
[marioroy]: mp3info must be in the PATH
[marioroy]: LA ++
[Lady_Aleena]: marioroy, this is forcing me to learn perl modules to use instead.
[marioroy]: qx isn't fun if having to backslash ' and " and \.
[marioroy]: LA ++ ok.
