Oh, now I got it! The warning is not actually coming from the if ($2 =~ /^0$/) { line. Unfortunately, perl sometimes reports the line number where an if block starts when the warning actually occurs later in the block. That's what is happening here.

First, you perform a regex match against $name, setting $1 and $2. Then, you perform a regex match against $2. So far, so good. Then you print out the values of $1 and $2. Oops! That second regex match you just did has wiped out the values of $1 and $2!

jeffa's node shows two ways to solve this problem. Either assign the results of the first match to new variables: my($first, $last) = $name =~ /(.+)&(.+)/; Or replace the second match with a comparison: if ($2 eq '0') {

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.
