( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I'm a complete Perl newbie here. I can't get this file at line8 to open within this subroutine. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
"#!/usr/bin/perl -w init_open(); opendir (EXA, "/export/home/cad/data/products") || die "no dir?: $1"; foreach $name(sort readdir (EXA)) { print "$name\n"; sub init_open { open(INFO, "/export/home/cad/data/products/$name/source/$") || + die "no dir: $1"; @lines = <INFO> ; } foreach $line (@lines) { $line=~tr/(//d; #Cut out all the exa garbage $line=~ s/COMP//; $line=~ s/BOARDPLACEMENT_BOM brd//; print "\n $line "; close(INFO) ; } print "\n ------------------------ \n"; } closedir(EXA);"

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
