in thread infinite loop blues

doh, got it in one.

it was not in fact importing correctly, because of a bad method setup. In the print_forms.pm file it had up near the top something that i didn't notice until i added the following line to server.pm:

if (eval { require $method }) { $method =~ s/^functions\/(.*)\.pm$/$1/; eval "import functions::${method}"; die $@ if $@; # added this, which gave me the error message i +needed...
After running it i got the error message "function commit redefined", which told me the error right away! i promptly opened the print_forms.pm file and told it to EXPORT print_forms instead of commit (oops, i'm usually much better at changing things after a copy/paste :-(

So that fixed the problem, but why was it infinite looping? Why didn't it stop after one iteration?

PS i can't believe i, yet again, made the "select is broken" error. i thought i had progressed past that stage. grrr...
