Because $SIRtrue is true whenever /SPECint_base/ matches, this line:

if ($SIRtrue && !($_ =~ /SPECint_base/)){

is equivalent to:

if ($SIRtrue && !$SIRtrue){

That "if" statement can never be true. A similar argument applies to the final "if" statement. No assignment will ever be made to the %SIR or %SFR hashes.

You might also wish to note that regex matches in Perl are performed by default on the $_ variable. See perlretut. So you can replace:

if ($_ =~ /SPECint_base/){

with this:

if (/SPECint_base/){

Update: of course limzz's reply is correct. But we still have not heard from the OP exactly what the behaviour of the program is. There is nothing in the code shown to cause an infinite loop.

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.
