Error message when using 'our'by alienhuman (Pilgrim)
|on Dec 18, 2001 at 01:11 UTC||Need Help??|
alienhuman has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I've got a bit of code that I have to move to a new machine. On the new machine, when it runs, it gives the following error message:
The "our $show_fields;" is the problem.
The version of perl that the code was developed with and runs on is 5.6.1 for sun4-solaris. The destination machine has perl version 5.005_03 for sun4-solaris.
My question is this: I have very little understanding of scoping and the (deprecated) use of the our keyword, but I need to get this code runnin on 5.005_03. Can anyone offer some explanation and advice?
