( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I have the following code snippet:

my($this) = FTP->new($RemoteHost, q(Timeout) => $Timeout ); bless($this); %{*$this} = ( %{*$this}, q(Rename) => $Rename, q(Recursions) => $Recursions, q(NoCheck) => $NoCheck, q(DirectCopy) => $DirectCopy, );

When the %{*$this} line is executed, I'm greeted with the following error...

Not a GLOB reference at line 85

This isn't my code, so any guidance on what this is telling me and what's needed to "fix" it would be appreciated.

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.
