Do you know where your variables are?

You are not testing whether the open statements worked before continuing on.

Also, what is the point of the for loop? A simple print $data; should suffice since the numbers will all appear on one line once the funky stuff is removed (since you are not printing a <br />). The funky stuff that I mentioned are the curly braces and they are killing the script.

Here's your for loop with the curly braces removed (and a couple mys for good measure):

for ( my $count = 0; $count < length( $data ); $count++ ) { my $number = substr( $data, $count, 1 ); print( $number, "\n" ); }

Here is another way to do that loop (bonus! I added the <br />s):

for my $number (split //, $data) { print "$number<br />\n"; }

Someone is bound to say this if I don't.... You can even do it with a one-liner:

print "$_<br />\n" for (split //, $data);


Update: Rewrote the last sentence in the second paragraph for clarity.

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.
