    You have been around for a long enough time to know that you can do more work to help us help you better.

    Please answer the following questions:

    1. Are you aware that the message is not an error but only a warning? See perllexwarn and perldiag.
    2. What is your input data?
    3. What is line 44?
    4. How does your input data correlate to line 44?
    5. What have you tried to rectify this?

    Wow! That's really odd. Normally it's line 42.

    That isn't Perl code.
      Indeed, you are an astute observer: it is Template Toolkit code, but it runs under Perl and its errors are Perl errors.


      A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James

        Just because something is written in perl doesn't mean that perl is responsible for its errors, or that a perl forum is the right place to ask about them. There are dedicated mailing lists for Template Toolkit.
