I have a similar problem ....

I get the warning message "Argument "n" isn't numeric in array element at program.pl line 356."

My code looks like this:

foreach $qbase (@query_sequence [$q_start .. $q_end]) { if ($qbase eq ("n"||"N") && $subj_sequence[$qbase] ne ("n"||"N +")) { ++$ncount; } } foreach $sbase (@subj_sequence [$s_start .. $s_end]) { if ($sbase eq ("n"||"N") && $query_sequence[$sbase] ne ("n"||" +N")) { ++$ncount; } }

My code is intended to mean:
for each position between a start and end position in an array, if the element at that position is an 'n', and the element at the same position in another array is not an n, ++count. $q_start, $q_end, $s_start, $s_end are numbers. @query_sequence and @subj_sequence are arrays of letters. It works ok apart from the warning! Why does this happen and how do I fix it?

Many thanks for your help

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.
