( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Line 69 is in the middle of GDBM_File.pm's AUTOLOAD routine:
sub AUTOLOAD { my($constname); ($constname = $AUTOLOAD) =~ s/.*:://; my $val = constant($constname, @_ ? $_[0] : 0); if ($! != 0) { if ($! =~ /Invalid/ || $!{EINVAL}) { $AutoLoader::AUTOLOAD = $AUTOLOAD; goto &AutoLoader::AUTOLOAD; } else { Carp::croak("Your vendor has not defined GDBM_File macro $ +constname, used"); } } eval "sub $AUTOLOAD { $val }"; goto &$AUTOLOAD; }
Line 69 is the one beginning with my $val. I'm familiar with 'use strict' and do indeed use it on my big projects, but this is not my code -- it's an excerpt from the wreq work request system.
