( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

You mean the input for the subroutine ? right ?

Is that what you need help with?

#!/usr/bin/perl -- use strict; use warnings; use Carp::Always; my $curWidth = my $curLength = 1; my $blah = q{-0.137 + (0.00479 / (W/0.9)) + (2.5593 * (W/0.9 ) ,0.045 +,0 }; print EvalPolynominal( $blah ); sub EvalPolynominal { #first parameter gives the polynominal string #second parameter gives the min-des width #third parameter gives the short-line length my $polynominal = shift; my $curWidth = shift; my $curLength = shift; $polynominal =~ s/W/$curWidth/g ;#replace W with current value of +min width $polynominal =~ s/L/$curLength/g ;#replace L with current value of + min Length return eval ($polynominal); } __END__ Use of uninitialized value $curWidth in substitution (s///) at blah li +ne 18. main::EvalPolynominal('-0.137 + (0.00479 / (W/0.9)) + (2.5593 * (W +/0.9 ) ,0.045,0 ') called at blah line 6 Having no space between pattern and following word is deprecated at (e +val 1) line 1. eval '-0.137 + (0.00479 / (/0.9)) + (2.5593 * (/0.9 ) ,0.045,0 ;' called at blah line 20 main::EvalPolynominal('-0.137 + (0.00479 / (W/0.9)) + (2.5593 * (W +/0.9 ) ,0.045,0 ') called at blah line 6

eval is for perl code, not math

build a calculator with marpa dsl or use Math::GSL::Poly but don't use eval
