in reply to XML::Twig output problem

I found a fix, though I am not understanding why it worked. I am new to both Perl and XML::Twig, so it should be no surprise. I updated the code to reflect the fix. If someone could explain what I am missing, I would certainly appreciate it!

    Um, what did you update, where?

      I updated the code that I was having trouble with, in particular:

      sub DumpOldAds { my ($twig,$nisNISJob)=@_; my $date = UnixDate("today", "%Y-%m-%d".'T00:00:00'); chomp $date; my $adate = $nisNISJob->findvalue('.//JobActiveDate'); print "\n$adate -|- $date\n"; if( $adate ne $date) { $nisNISJob->delete; } else { print $nisNISJob; }; }

      When I replaced "else {$twig->flush} with else {print $nisNISJob), it worked. What am I missing concerning flush not working? Thanks, P

[Tux]: And I just tested, neither do other Tk apps :) (95% of my Tk Apps is either just monitoring (no input) or input of just numbers). Something to investigate then
[choroba]: Maybe something like this?
[choroba]: I vaguely remember we had problems with dead keys in Tk at $work - 2, but I forgot all the details
[choroba]: but it was worse on MSWin than on Linux
[choroba]: (and OSX didn't exist yet)
