( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

a problem, but no code backing it up. that's a tough problem to solve. okay, without the code, i can give you help on debugging skills, because you're going to have to do them yourself. here's a partial list:

  • start small -- create the smallest script that can recreate the error.
  • read the error -- is there something in your environment that is preventing sourcesafe from getting a file? must a directory exist before a get to that directory succeeds?
  • add debugging -- print out in perl where you think it'll help. calling the system? print the line first.
  • add more debugging -- use sourcesafe's debugging features to see what it's doing.

if you're still stumped, post the code here. some of us may have the (mis)forture of working with sourcesafe. but first, read jeffa's How (Not) To Ask A Question

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.
