in reply to Re: perl module for pop3 script
in thread can't call method without package or object reference

Apologies... here are the details:

--I'm on a Unix server, running Perl Version 5.006001

--The script can be found here: The instructions (such as they are) can be found here:

--I do not get the error immediately; it takes about 30 or 40 seconds for the "connection error" text to appear.

--The error message from log file is as folows:

Can't call method "login" without a package or object reference at line 31.

--When I run the script, everything appears to work fine: by calling I get an html document to log in to, I am then taken to a window with three frames, I can set up new accounts, and all data is written to the "db" files. I can even send mail (/usr/lib/sendmail).

--Another respondent to my initial message (sorry it was so long -- was not aware of the readmore tag) -- asked why I did not use the net::pop3 module. I guess the answer is that the script I am having trouble with employs its own module. My server has the CPAN module available, I just do not know if I have the option of using it with the script with which I am having trouble.

Thanks again for all your assistance. David
