( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

At first sight this behaviour looks very strange. If there was any data available via <>, the command x <> would consume all of it and the loop would not be entered. I've played a bit with this setup and are able to reproduce such a thing. If <> is exhausted and the final returned undef is ignored, the next call to <> will read from STDIN, even if file names were provided via @ARGV.

This behaviour is documented in I/O Operators.

I guess there is some part in the script that ignores an undef return from <> or evaluates it in list context before the loop in question. And there are named files in addition to data from STDIN.

Update:

...the loop would not be entered.

This it not true and is not what I wanted to say. The loop is entered, but it will wait for input from STDIN.

Greetings,

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.
