in reply to problem with Archive::Zip

From Archive::Zip
If the name given does not represent a readable plain file or symbolic + link, undef will be returned
It looks as though $renamed_file is not "a readable plain file or symbolic link".

Try wrapping your code with this check to be sure:

if ( ( -r $renamed_file )&& ( ( -f $renamed_file ) || ( -l $renamed_fi +le ) ) ){ #add to zip } else{ print "$renamed_file is not a readable valid file id\n" }
print "Good ",qw(night morning afternoon evening)[(localtime)[2]/6]," fellow monks."

[moritz]: choroba in python I use jsonschema
[moritz]: I'm sure there's a Perl implementation of it too
[choroba]: it seems Kelp and similar help you a lot with dispatching, but how to do something similar with contents?
[moritz]: like JSON::Schema
[Corion]: ambrus++ # more bugs than lines
[Corion]: That's like "works on my machine" ;-)
[choroba]: I mean, I'd like to say "this path should run this sub, but first it should check the user is authenticated, has the following permissions, and the contents is valid against a given schema
[ambrus]: no, that means I haven't even tried to run it, might not even parse
[ambrus]: so it doesn't work on my machine
[choroba]: i.e. I know JSON::Schema, I'm just curious whether there's a ready solution to plug it into a web service
