jesuashok has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

dear monks,

use Net::SCP qw(scp); $scp = Net::SCP->new( "", "metrica"); $scp->get("/apps/inst1/metrica/sample.txt") or die $scp->{errstr};
I have taken the above code from Net::SCP pod. when I executed the above code, I got the following error message
C:\Antony\Perl>perl Died at line 5.
help would be appreciated.

    So what's on line 5? (You've only shown us 4 lines.)

    What does this do?

    use Net::SCP qw(iscp); iscp("metrica\@", ".");
    (update: escaped @)

      nothing is there on line 5. I have only 4 lines of code.

    I think that you have the procedural interface confused with the OO interface. Your code mixes the two. It seems that your intent was to use the procedural interface:

     use Net::SCP qw(scp); is procedural---not OO.

    $scp = Net::SCP->new( "", "metrica"); $scp->get("/apps/instl/metrica/sample.txt") or die $scp->{errstr};
    ---is OO.

    I would stick with procedural and take another look at the code that ysth posted.


      use Net::SCP; $scp = Net::SCP->new( "", "metrica"); $scp->get("/apps/inst1/metrica/antony.txt") or die $scp->{errstr};
      Still I am getting the same issue.

        Does the code run if you change the die to a warn?

[Eily]: you mean a dll where the SW was written in perl? That sounds unlikely
[muthusathish]: please help me regarding this
[hippo]: Easier just to go and look at the source, no?
[Eily]: mostly because perl isn't compiled in the usual sense of the meaning, you can't execute the opcodes directly, you need the perl engine
[muthusathish]: i dont have the environment too, but i need to get the logics so that i can re-wite
[Eily]: what makes you think your dll is "perl based" ?
[muthusathish]: i dont have source code too
[muthusathish]: it is used in VB 6 appln, while debugging is getting error
[hippo]: Somebody has. Ask the author.
[Eily]: muthusathish ok, the fact that you can't tell what perl has to do with it proves it: this is not perl
