in reply to Perl Worst Practices

the following errors:
Can't call method "Tgoto" on an undefined value at line 50. END failed--call queue aborted. Can't call method "Tgoto" on an undefined value at line 27. END failed--call queue aborted.
can be fixed by adding:
use Term::Cap; our $OFS=Tgetent Term::Cap;
to the start of the file.
which makes it sort of work, but i might be missing something....

    Of course the program does Tgetent at the appropriate moment. It's that some systems do weird things when $/ is undef:

    use Term::Cap; $/=undef; my $t=Term::Cap->Tgetent ({TERM=>undef, OSPEED=>38400}); __END__ failed termcap lookup on xterm at - line 3

    So I had to stick a local $/ = "\n" there as a quick fix.
