( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
There are a bunch of problems with this code.

First off, your formatting is very difficult to read. You should indent the code like this.

Example:

if ($blah) { foreach (@goo) { print; } } else { print "no way man!\n"; }

It makes it much easier to check that all your braces line up.

Secondly, you're not sending $query to the valid_code subroutine, or any of the other subroutines that require that information to work properly.

Thirdly, you don't need to put the code in your first if statement into an eval statement.

My guess is that you're never getting to the part of your code that updates the records.

There are a lot of things you need to do to get this script working. If you'd like, msg me, and I'd be happy to guide you in the right direction.

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
