( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

To clarify, using your method, do I want to have the length error appear physically before/after the error in question - or numerically?

Also, how is this possible?

Useless use of private variable in void context at beta.cgi line 2766. Useless use of length in void context at beta.cgi line 2766.

The 'length' line of code is one line before the GeneratePassword() line, yet they show up as the same line in the error? Is this because the perl interpreter has simplified them into one line of code?

However, if I place the 'length' line on the very next line after the GeneratePassword() line, I get the following (this is what I'm looking for, correct?

Useless use of private variable in void context at beta.cgi line 2766. Useless use of length in void context at beta.cgi line 2767.

So using this method, does it not point to the line my $generated_password = GeneratePassword(); as the culprit?

    [Corion]: marto: Oh, I'm jealous. I'm going to see DM in Frankfurt, but it's a stadium full of people, so, rather a big thing where you mostly get to see the band on screens ;)
    [marto]: yes, the last time I saw them was in Berlin a few years ago, at the old Olympic stadium
    [marto]: After Sunday I don't think I'll go see them again :)
    [LanX]: Corion: come on, people are people! ;)
    [Corion]: Naah, I think it's still an OK show so far. Their new songs aren't exactly great, but I'm not going there for new material anyway ;)
    [marto]: I got the feeling from the last show that for big sections of it, they were not really into what they were doing
    [Corion]: LanX: Sure, they can bask in my Halo
    [marto]: more so than the previous show I saw
    [Corion]: marto: Well, I think they go a tour every two years and I think it's hard to even get a connection with the crowd at a 20k people concert... But maybe after this time I'll stop too ;)
    [Corion]: I still have to see the Pet Shop Boys live before they stop touring at all
