You could try using diagnostics:-
just add the following to your program
use diagnostics;
you may need to comment out use strict; and remove the '-w' flag. What diagnostics does is give you a discription of what may be the problem.

In you particular case you are faced with using a possibly undefined variable as you have stated. You could either go ahead with your proposed idea, or "initialise" everything at the start of your code. EG
$a=""; $b=""; $c="";
Or you could put your potentialy uninitialied variable into a safe state after it is defined and before use eg.
$b = defined($b)?$b:"";

Hope this helps.

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.
