How can you judge from the quoted log entry that parameter h is set? I only can see, that it was set in the referer, but I couldn't see it for the logged request?

Are you using strict and warnings? If not, please do it. If yes, I wonder, that there's no warning?

The following topics are not related to your problem, I think, but maybe give room for "optimization":

If you want to check alternative values of $function, use the if/elsif/else construct. It saves some time (maybe ;o). Otherwise each if will be checked (what for? If $function eq 'load', it cannot be $function eq 'mark').

if ( $function eq 'load' ) { # this } elsif ( $function eq 'mark' ) { # that } elsif ( $function eq 'foobar' ) { # something completely different } else { # any other stuff or something unexpected? }

Your code:

my $junk; ($junk,my $headsent,my $headword) = split(/[sw]/,$h);

could be rewritten like this:

# no $junk anymore and no doubled 'my' ! my ( $headsent, $headword ) = ( split /[sw]/, $h )[1,2];

Can you reproduce that issue in a little code example which can be tested by the monks to identify the issue?


  • Is there a difference between the times when it works and when not (other url, special action, whatever?)?

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.
