( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
The following shows my first dabblings into File::Temp, which are essentially pulled directly from it's POD.

The first 2 functions, WERX and WERX2, will successfully create their files in /tmp/.   The second 2 funtions, DUNWERK and DUNWERK2, are supposed to also unlink their created file, but they don't work.

Far as I can tell DUNWERK does not create a file, and DUNWERK2 bombs with the following error:
undefined subroutine &main::unlink0 called at "this_script" line "unlink0..." <STDIN> chunk2.

What am I doing wrong here?

  • 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:

  • 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).
