( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hi all, when trying to run this code snippet:
my $str = join ('',my @temp = <>); while ($str =~ /^\#:lav\n(^(?!\#:eof\n).*\n)+/gm){ my ($val) = $&; print $val; }
I get different behavior depending on what system I run it on. It runs fine on FreeBSD (4.5) perl 5.6.0, but fails on Gentoo, Perl5.8. Also, the file being fed through the script has been encoded (using uuencode or mimencode or mpack.. I tried them all) and sent to an email recipient on the BSD box. Bascially I have a script on the BSD box I want to migrate to Gentoo. This script takes a text file from an email attachment (previously encoded to compensate for Windoze ^M) and processes it. But whe I try to run the script on the Gentoo box I get a seg. fault. I think the problem is in the encoding so this may not be the forum to ask this question. If so, I apologize in advance. Thank you. Vince

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.
