This is my first post here. I have benefited a lot from the information on this site and thank all you folks out there for your valuable and timely assistance.
I have been working with perl for 4 weeks now. I have written a script that performs data type validation. It takes in integers/decimals/dates and makes sure that they are within the boundaries of their data types. but now, if an integer field comes in with a special character ($ or #), perl still accepts it as a valid integer value. How can I ensure that if a variable that is defined as an integer comes in with special characters, it is rejected.
Hope I hear from one of you. Thanks..!!!
