( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Even with breakpoints it will not stop on the false if conditions.

The test program:

$ cat use strict; use warnings; use feature 'say'; my $c = shift; if ($c == 1) { say 1; } elsif ($c == 2) { say 2; } elsif ($c == 3) { say 3; } else { say "something else"; }
And now the execution under the debugger, with the insertion of four break points:
$ perl -d 4 Loading DB routines from version 1.33 Editor support available. Enter h or `h h' for help, or `man perldebug' for more help. main::( my $c = shift; DB<1> b 7 DB<2> b 8 DB<3> b 9 DB<4> b 10 DB<5> s main::( if ($c == 1) { DB<5> s main::( say "something else"; DB<5> s something else Debugged program terminated. Use q to quit or R to restart, use o inhibit_exit to avoid stopping after program termination, h q, h R or h o to get additional info.

In reply to Re^2: If statement seems to ignore elsif and skips to else by Laurent_R

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.

  • 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).
