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

That error means something (such as an error message) was printed before the header was printed. In this case, an error is printed before compilation of the script is done, and the header is only outputed after the script is done compiling.

The content of eval BLOCK is compiled when the rest of the script is compiled, so the use in the eval BLOCK (and anything in the used file) will be executed before you send the header.

You could send the header sooner (using BEGIN), or you could use eval EXPR instead of eval BLOCK.

The following executes everything in the same order as if the error checking wasn't there (i.e. modules are loaded before CHECK is called), but dies gracefully if a module can't be loaded.

#!/usr/bin/perl BEGIN { eval (" use LWP::UserAgent; use HTTP::Request::Common; "); if ($@) { print "500 Internal Server Error\n"; print "Content-type: text/plain\n"; print "\n"; print $@ die($@); # For the log file. } } print "Content-type: text/html\n\n"; my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new; my %post = (...); my $response = $ua->request(POST "http://www.example.com/", [ %post ]) +; print $response->as_string;

By the way, it's $@, not @$.

Title:
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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
