Re the last one, it should simply be gotten rid of. The reason it's there is to keep you from accidentally saying print (1+2)/3;. That now gives /both/ a useless use of division in void context and a print interpreted as function. The "print interpreted as function" was there long before the "... in void context"; the later is more useful, but was harder for perl to notice.

[ambrus]: Or unless you left the title field empty or entered a very short title for the node, but then you'd get a message saying that.
[ambrus]: I hope Corion or some other admin is here and can check the logs to see what the problem is.
[mz2255]: I wish I had an online shop but sadly no. The title field definitly wasn't short, had a perl module in the title with 5-6 additional words.
[ambrus]: you can also try to just post again in case it was some intermittent error
[mz2255]: Tried again, denied. Maybe my code is just so bad the site refuses to post it.
