If warnings are turned on you are warned about uninitialized values, aren't you?
That's one of the points of use warnings. If you are using uninitialized variables all over the place, then perhaps a review of the code is necessary. Below I have thrown together an example of two scripts that do the exact same thing... except that one produces warnings and one doesn't :)

#!/usr/bin/perl # The 'bad' version - produces warnings use strict; use warnings; my $name; # perhaps some code to get user's name # { ... } print 'My name is ' . $name;
#!/usr/bin/perl # The 'good' version - produces no warnings use strict; use warnings; my $name; # perhaps some code to get user's name # { ... } # The key line. Set a default value, even if blank. $name ||= ""; print 'My name is ' . $name;

Title:
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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
