Hello monks , I am new to perl and this site : my question is , I have the following file which I am reading :
[PASSWORDS] GUY ddd GIRL dfd33 BOY df341
I am reading it as follow
my @listOfPass; open(INPUT , "<$input_file" ) or die "couldn't open"; my ($section,%passwds); while(<CONFILE>) { chomp; if (/^\[(.*?)\]$/) { $section = $1; next; } if ($section eq 'PASSWORDS') { my ($mkt,$pass) = split; $passwds{$mkt} = $pass; $passwds{$pass} = $mkt; @listOfPass = "$pass"; # <------ not working :(( }#end while loop close (INPUT);
What I am trying tod do is after getting the passwords , store it into the array that is declared outside the open statment, when I try to store it into the array , it says it is not declare and when I declare it inside , it can't see it outside that loop. I just want to have all the passwords stored in a global array in the order it was read from the config file so I can pass that array to a different subs inside my program. I hope I am clear ,,, thanks

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.
