( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
not reproducible on my system.

please check if that code produces that output:

lanx@nc10-ubuntu:~$ perl my @systems=qw(SERVER1 SERVER2 SERVER3); foreach my $system (@systems) { print "Now powering on $system:"; print "\t\t[DONE]\n"; } __END__ Now powering on SERVER1: [DONE] Now powering on SERVER2: [DONE] Now powering on SERVER3: [DONE] lanx@nc10-ubuntu:~$

Otherwise try to isolate the bug, eg dump \@systems and check special vars.

Cheers Rolf

UPDATE:

If you click on the download link of my code you will see that my example has real tabs where yours has a list of blanks. Your not posting the real output.

UPDATE:

do your servernames really have the same length?

lanx@nc10-ubuntu:~$ perl my @systems=qw(SRV1 SERVER2 SERVER3); foreach my $system (@systems) { print "Now powering on $system:"; print "\t\t[DONE]\n"; } __END__ Now powering on SRV1: [DONE] Now powering on SERVER2: [DONE] Now powering on SERVER3: [DONE]

if not better try using printf or formats
