Removing the $y = 760; has no effect

    With prFile('data.pdf') being within the loop, a new document is being created at every line. This is how I think it should look ;
    #!/usr/bin/perl use PDF::Reuse; use strict; use warnings; printinterrr(); sub printinterrr { open(MYINPUTFILEONE, "data.txt"); $| = 1; my @linesone = <MYINPUTFILEONE>; # read file into list close (MYINPUTFILEONE); printf (" =================\n\n"); printf (" | VERIFY NAME |\n\n"); printf (" =================\n\n"); printf (" \n\n"); printf (" PLEASE INSERT NAME TO VERIFY:\n\n"); printf (" \n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n"); my $interrrverify = <STDIN>; $interrrverify = <STDIN> until defined $interrrverify; chomp($interrrverify); printf (" ========================================\n\n"); printf (" | NAME | NUMBER | TYPE | OWNER | INTER |\n\n"); printf (" ========================================\n\n\n"); my $found = 0; my $pageTop = 800; my $pageBottom = 40; my $x = 35; # Left margin my $y = 760; my $step = 10; # Distance between lines (fontsize = 12) prFile('data.pdf'); prCompress(1); # Compress streams prFont('Times-Roman'); prText(50, 800, "======================================="); prText(50, 790, "NAME NUMBER TYPE OWNER INTER"); prText(50, 780, "======================================="); + my $format = " %-13s %-15s %-11s %-10s %0s\n"; foreach my $interrrverify2 (@linesone) { my @fieldone = split(":", $interrrverify2); if ($fieldone[4] =~ /(?<![\w-])$interrrverify(?![\w-])/i) { printf ($format, $fieldone[0], $fieldone[1], $fieldone[2], $fiel +done[3], $fieldone[4]); prText(50, $y, "$fieldone[0]"); prText((50 + 90), $y, "$fieldone[1]"); prText((50 + 195), $y, "$fieldone[2]"); prText((50 + 272), $y, "$fieldone[3]"); prText((50 + 335), $y, "$fieldone[4]"); $found =1; if ($y < $pageBottom) { prPage(); $y = $pageTop; } else { $y -= $step; } } } # END FILE LOOP prEnd; } sleep 10;
    Note the prEnd is also outside the loop.

      Thanks POJ! That worked nicely. The prEnd outside of the loop worked I do keep forgetting to end a loop when a section has been executed. Thanks again POJ!

[Discipulus]: but i'm also animalist, so i' hirted by 1nickt's sig: The way forward always starts with a mammal test... grin..
[erix]: I might if I did remember. It's probably somewhere in the site docs
[uhClem]: I don't favor that sort of thing around here but the place for our politics is wherever we live.
[uhClem]: And besides, the objection to it was off-topic.
[Discipulus]: 1nickt hide signature is a positive action; i think is not a solution here
[erix]: my objection to sigs is just that they take screen space. ( Some monks would have *several* slogans underneath a 1-liner reply )
