in thread Can't Write to Files properly

Uncommenting strict won't have it run at all so I left it uncommented. I can't understand anything strict puts out anyhows. I have not written perl in a long time and need to get this thing working so no sleep until it is working... look like it is time to do a complete rewrite... unless anyone wants to make a quick $20.

    $20? Allow me to suggest:

    http://www.freelancer.com/jobs/Perl/

    Two further suggestions:

    1) Include some sample input data in your spec (ie. what files in wwwindex might or might not contain).

    2) Don't come back here and complain that the $20 'solution' that you've been sold doesn't work...

    HTH, dave

    Update: Yeah, well, managed to reply to myself. But I'm sure you get the picture.

    Update to update: Grandfather has re-(grand?)parented this node to where I should have posted it in the first place, so my previous update is no longer valid. Thanks gramps. But it would still be a shame to miss the Shangri-Las (or maybe not...).

      I included two of the files that appear in wwwindex. They have all the input data. I don't know how else to explain. I am not a seasoned programmer like most here. Most advise is just too technical for me to understand. If I see sample code, I am able to figure out how to reverse engineer. This time I am just at the wall.

    The reason it doesn't run under strictures is because it's broken, which you know or you wouldn't have come here with a problem. If you don't understand what the error messages mean ask about those, but leave strictures on.

    Oh, and if you really want people to take interest in your problem, whittle the code down to a self contained sample that runs and demonstrates the issue, although that will take you some time and if you are unfortunate you may figure the solution out for yourself in the process.

    True laziness is hard work
