( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

jhumphreys:

"Not working" isn't much of a description. If I had to guess (and I do, since I don't know what "Not working" means), I'd guess that it appears to hang, since you don't reprompt if there's an error. Perhaps you ought to put an error message in there. For example:

OUTER1: while (<STDIN>) { chomp; for $to (%rates) { last OUTER1 if $to eq $_; } print "I can't find a conversion for '$_'!\n"; }

Also, there are better ways to check your hash. They are, after all, optimized for searching. Read perldoc perldsc and perldoc -f exists for clues to simplify your loops!

When your only tool is a hammer, all problems look like your thumb.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
