Re^2: csv file is not opening using use strict

in reply to Re: csv file is not opening using use strict
in thread csv file is not opening using use strict

print "$fields[0] fields1";

That's not going to cause a bareword error under strict.

BEGIN { $| = 1; $^W = 1; }

Why? Especially $^W?

Note that my @fields should be parenthesized to get a list...

Why? Under what circumstances does the declaration of an array not provide list context?

while ( defined( my $line = <$data> ) )

defined is unnecessary here because Perl will add it for you.

... also, you opened $data, so don't forget to close it.

The filehandle's stored in a lexical variable and it's the end of the program and you're not bothering to check the return value (for a filehandle opened for reading!), and the filehandle's at the end of the file at this point, and you have autodie in effect, so why bother?

[oakbox]: Anyone else having difficulty looking at search.cpan.org?
[oakbox]: I keep getting a proxy error.
[marto]: try http://metacpan. org/
[marto]: I can't access search.cpan right now either. I prefer the metacpan search and general formatting anyway. Also it seems faster
[oakbox]: Yeah, the front page of cpan.org uses metacpan.org now for search results
[oakbox]: but there are a billion links 'out there' linking to search.cpan.org.
[marto]: yep :)
[Discipulus]: being her marto, can you explain what "Par for the course I'm afraid." means?
Discipulus here..
[marto]: "what is normal or expected in any given circumstances."
