( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hi guys, hope you can help on this one. I have a hash which is filled from lines in a file, after a split of the line a hash is filled defined as  $time{$recordNumber}. Later on in the script I want to check if  $time{$recordNumber} exists, and if not enter the if statement. I tried using
if ($time{$recordNumber} == undef) #147 { $time{$recordNumber} = 10000; }
but got  Use of uninitialized value at ././monitor-dataset-age line 147 It's not no, because it's not there...but I'm testing to see if it's not there!? Any help much appreciated, Many thanks, Kim

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.
