in reply to scope with multiple files

Are you sure $conf isn't being set to undef by the do? Read in the manual the paragraphs beginning "If <samp>do</samp> cannot read the file...", to see how to diagnose the precise error occurring.

    ariels you star!

    I changed the line
    my $conf = do ('G4 HD:Desktop Folder:perl:test:config.pl');
    to
    my $conf = do ('G4 HD:Desktop Folder:perl:test:conf.pl');
    And it worked as expected.

    Thank you.

[ozboomer]: Howdy, all.. Trying this once more... Not really a perl question :(... but I don't know how to even title my query (more...)
[ozboomer]: There's a text file with lots of sections in it, like an '.ini/.conf' file. Each section can be 'used' or 'unused' by its application (more...)
[ozboomer]: Some folk want to use the text file as 'storage', keeping ALL items in it (a database); others call it an 'active document' that should only contain 'in-use' sections. Is there a 'good practice' for this sort of thing?
