( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
The code I'm using comes in two parts. The general function for running source safe commands is:
sub PerformSS { my $self = shift; my ($cmdArg) = @_; my $cmd = "ss " . $cmdArg; my $status = 0; if ($self->doSS) { $status = system("$cmd 1>>$errorfile 2>&1"); $self->checkError($status, "PerformSS $cmd failed $status $!"); $self->trace("--- completed $cmd ---\n"); } else { $self->trace("--- PerformSS did not $cmd ---\n"); } return $status; }

The call I am trying to use to fetch by label from source safe is:
$status = $self->PerformSS("get \$/project -R -I-Y -V\"$label\"" +);

Note that checkError issues the error message and some addition supporting information if $status is not zero.

On the other hand, the following code works just fine, which is why I had omitted the code in my original posting. The question I have is still... is there something special or different about how the fetch by label returns?
$status = $self->PerformSS("get \$/project -R -I-Y");

  • 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).
