When is 03 not equal to 03?by spacewarp (Pilgrim)
|on Oct 14, 2001 at 00:30 UTC||Need Help??|
spacewarp has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
In the following code, $this_category is a two-digit value that's read from a local file. $tt is a variable I defined for debugging purposes.
The response that the web browser gets is:
I am running perl 5.005_03 and using taint checking and -w. Does anyone have any idea what's happening here? I need the $this_category value to work for a hash lookup.
I will gladly post more of the code if asked.
