( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I noticed two problems in your code. First, the line where you're getting the warning:
$name =~ /(.+)&(.+)/; if ($2 =~ /^0$/) {
You haven't actually verified that the regex matched against $name. I suspect that the regex match is failing, leaving $1 and $2 uninitialized, because $name doesn't hold what you think it does. Make sure the match succeeds before relying on the special variables.

Second, to check the format, you have a while loop inside your foreach loop. If $_ is false, you push 0 onto @info, and then call next. However, this next jumps to the next iteration of the while loop (which would happen anyway), when you want to jump to the next iteration of the foreach loop. You should use a loop label to resolve this problem.

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.
