Hello eddiemo,

You have forgotten to close parenthesis when you store your attributes (see below):

$ perl test.pl syntax error at test.pl line 17, near "get_date;" Execution of test.pl aborted due to compilation errors.

After adding the parenthesis it works :) (see below):

$ perl test.pl Hello World! START ing script test.pl SA - YEAR: 2019, MONTH: 5, DAY: 77 END ing script test.pl

Sample of code for replication after modifications:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; my $year = 2019; my $month = 5; my $day = 19; print "Hello World!\n"; print"\n\t START ing script $0\n"; sub get_date { my ($y, $m, $d) = (9999, 888, 77); return($y, $m, $d); } # end get_date ($year, $month, $day) = get_date; print "SA - YEAR: $year, MONTH: $month, DAY: $day\n"; print "\n\t\t END ing script $0\n";

I assume the goal is to pass some parameters to the function. I would recommend to start reading here perlsub. If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask again.

Hope this helps, BR.

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.
