in thread Dereferencing %hash that does not exist.

Cool problem solved, thanks very much

Never fails to amaze me how I sometimes just seem to have no grasp on something so fundamental :(

I keep on trying though !

    Ok, so I implemented the eval variant of this and it seems to work well, thank you guys.
    I now have a slightly different issue.

    my::module::exit_routine is also passed into a simple logging module that I put together like this:
    my $log = LogSimple->new(logdir => $logdir, logfile => $logfile, exit +=> \&my::module::exit_routine )
    In this particular script whenever my::module::exit_routine is called I need to pass the %modifier dispatch table so I need to setup the $log object like this:
    my $log = LogSimple->new(logdir => $logdir, logfile => $logfile, exit +=> \&my::module::exit_routine(\%modifier) )
    Except this does not work, the error is:
    Not a CODE reference at /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.10.1/

    I have to admit that my OOP is really in it's infancy.

    Really not sure on this one so any help much appreciated.

    Cheers, Darren

      The expression  \&my::module::exit_routine is evaluated at compile time and so, of course, cannot 'take' an argument (although the LogSimple module, to which you offer no link and which doesn't appear on CPAN or MetaCPAN, may provide a way around this; see its documentation). A typical work-around would be something like (untested)
          exit => sub { return my::module::exit_routine(\%modifier); }

[Corion]: marto: I used Padre for some time but then switched to Notepad++, since all the funky features I wanted to put into Padre couldn't be made to work, and/or I lost interest :)
[Discipulus]: indeed marto I dunno. I tested once and many years ago. But I'm not the programmer yardstick. I try to install Padre via cpan now just to add a line about it in the issue. Strawberryperl all life long!
[marto]: yeah, when I worked on Windows I did use Np++ all the time

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
