( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I'm trying to use Net::Dict, but having issues. Here's an example.
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use Net::Dict; my $dict=Net::Dict->new(''); my @words=<STDIN>; foreach (@words){ chomp; print "$dict->define('$_')"; } #but that returns Net::Dict=GLOB(0x8271660)->define('word') #so I'll try this: my $word=$dict->define('banana'); print $word; #this returns ARRAY(0x825d3ec)
Any clues what I'm doing wrong? Thanks in advance.

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.
