in reply to Config::IniFiles , all methods return fail?

The module fails to create an object. As a result $overlay is undefined.

You should check the result of object creation and have a look at @Config::IniFiles::errors upon failure.

my $cfg = Config::IniFiles->new( -file => 'test.ini' ) or die "Failed to create Config::IniFiles object: @Config::IniFiles: +:errors\n";

addendum: example:

0 linuxer@host /tmp $ cat /tmp/ && perl /tmp/ #! /usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Config::IniFiles; my $overlay = Config::IniFiles->new(-file => 'test.ini') or die "Failure: @Config::IniFiles::errors\n"; $overlay->newval("section1", "arg1", "anotherval"); $overlay->WriteConfig(-delta=>1); __END__ Failure: Empty file treated as error 255 linuxer@host /tmp $

    Hmm interesting because i'm 5 years programmer... (my head is not in place :))

    C:\Documents and Settings\...\Desktop>
    Failed to create Config::IniFiles object: Empty file treated as error

    I understand... Ok running now, no problem... "-allowempty => 1" <= including parameter to "new" method and entering value is "1" and allowing "empty file"...

    Thank you very much linuxer .
