Defining variables like $count and try to use variable $cont some lines down (and searching the typo for minutes ;-)).

use strict; will finds those immediately.

    Yes normally i do, but i took a example (afair regarding while loop from Lama Book) which was modified, and it didnt run first cause there seemed to be a problem with a variable and the "use strict;" so i turned it off ;-), i could list the example as soon as i find it in the book again

    Update: My fault. I noticed that use strict; and the declaration e.g. with "my" is introduced later in another chapter so i was not supposed to use strict; at all in this example (in chapter 3) of the book, i didnt know how to "declare" the variable so i uncommented use strict; for a quick and dirty solution. /Update: MH
      Bad choice. Silencing errors doesn't make them go away.

        I couldn't agree more, in the past I used to have to work with a lot of awful VB code others had written, the line on error resume next * always set of an alarm bell in my head :P

        Cheers
