For 2023 (and 2024 ...) - we are now fully retired from IT training.
We have made many, many friends over 25 years of teaching about Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, Java, C and C++ - and MySQL, Linux and Solaris/SunOS too. Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own risk.

Lisa and I (Graham) now live in what was our training centre in Melksham - happy to meet with former delegates here - but do check ahead before coming round. We are far from inactive - rather, enjoying the times that we are retired but still healthy enough in mind and body to be active!

I am also active in many other area and still look after a lot of web sites - you can find an index ((here))
A case of a missing file that is somehow refrenced

Posted by mparker1113 (mparker1113), 20 February 2007

I have two consternating issues that i am attempting to get going with. I am not a perl expert by any means, but am hoping to hack solutions if I can get going.

I have a page which consists of the code below. Curiously enough, the second require refers to a file that doesn't exist in its directory. I looked for references to it in the config.cgi file and found none. The page that contains this code is viewcart_cl.cgi, but the required is nowhere i can find.  

Would anyone be able to shine a light on this mystery for me?



print "Content-type: text/html\n\n<html>Error: $@" if $@;

Perl uses a list of directories called @INC to tell it all the various places to look for included files .... have a look what's in you @INC.

earth-wind-and-fire:~ grahamellis$ perl
print (join("\n",@INC),"\n");
earth-wind-and-fire:~ grahamellis$
