Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string

mikeraz has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Well this should be a no brainer:

Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5/Net/OUR/DNS.pm line 139 (#1) Where: 139 print __LINE__, " our_fqdn called with $host state_code $state_cod +e and thus region of $region_code \n"; Outputs: 139 our_fqdn called with scdor44s4q1rr.nw.us.our-dns.com state_code OR + and thus region of NW
All the values are being printed, indicating to my mind that they were initialized. But Perl says otherwise.

Cluestick whack requested.

    Strange indeed. Can you show neighbouring lines in the code and in the output as well?

    The line shown appears to be correct - I tried it with values for the variables. So, I hate to ask the basic questions but it has got to come down to one of these:
    1. Are you using warnings and strict? If you are not using strict then you might wish to consider setting it on as a test using -Mstrict on the command-line.
    2. Are you certain that the line you show is really the line it is reporting the error on? Could it be using a different version of the module?

    By the way, 5.12 reports the variable name that is uninitialized.

    Maybe the warning isn't coming from that line, or maybe it's coming from a different run of that line.

      That appears to be the case. The debug messages were popping up out of sync with the calling program print statements.

      Thank you.
