( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I'm unable to detect the correct windows path in the below code.
Can anyone suggest me how many '\' that I need to add it in the path to make it works ?
Is there any better modules to tackle the path issues in windows ?
#!C:\perl\bin\perl use strict; use warnings; my %typehash = ( 'tomcat' => '\\d\$\\logs\\tomcat', 'tomcatweb' => '\\d\$\\logs\\web', 'apache' => '\\d\$\\logs\\Apache' ); sub getLog { my ($a,$type)=@_; my $server=$a; my $dir = "\\\\$server".$typehash{$type}; print "\n $dir "; chomp(my $meh = `dir /b /O:D $dir`); print $meh; } &getLog("",'tomcat');

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.
