Well, it looks to me like you're trying to convert a C++ program to Perl. If that's the case, there isn't a CIN and COUT in Perl. Use these instead:

use strict; print "Insert Employee Number: "; # Prompts the user my $empNum = 1; while ($empNum) { $empNum = <>; # Gets input from STDIN print "The employee number you enetered was: $empNum\n"; print "Insert Employee Number: "; # Prompts the user }
If you're still having trouble with things like this, check out Tutorials - there's lots more help there.

Update: The old code prompted for an empty line - use this instead. Sorry about that.

Good luck,
- Sherlock

[marinersk]: sub newtest{my $expected_result = &target('foo'); my $actual_result = &target('foo'); if ($actual_result eq $expected_result) { &tdd_success(); } else { &tdd_fail(); } } # Test works after three years!
[choroba]: or nobody bothered...
[choroba]: The problem was bigger, as the test tried to call a method that didn't exist anymore
[marinersk]: :: ducking ::
[choroba]: because, someone renamed the method, but didn't notice it was used in the test, as the test was skipped
[marinersk]: Well, if the method doesn't exist, it would be hard to pass the test.
[choroba]: later, someone removed the new method, as all its usage places were safe, but didn't notice the test still used the old name
[choroba]: fortunately, it wasn't that hard to replace the method and fix a few remaining failures due to the changes we did to the codebase over the years
[marinersk]: choroba Sounds like a process improvement opportunity; tests may not all need to be run, but they should all be compiled with perl -c before check-in/promotion happens.
[choroba]: so, now I have the test, so I can start making changes in the code. Back to the original ticket, yay!
