Hello dear monks,
I wrote the following code:
do { $content = make_get_request($url_reports); $tries--; } while ($content == "[]" && $tries > 0); print $content."\n"; print "check:".($content == "[]")."\n"; if ("$content" == "[]") { print "Failed to report.\n"; } else { print "Successfully reported.\n"; } sub make_get_request { # Builds cmd for checking in API return `$cmd`; }
When I run it (and the data got to the DB), I get:
[{"_id":"123125125","files":6,"user":"abcasda","timestamp":1571685134, +"runtime":3,"run_name":"checking"}] check:1 Failed to report. Successfully reported.
Why does it enter in the if-statement if $content != "[]?

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.

    What does the "s" stand for in "perls"? (Whence perls)
