Re: perl DateCalc & Calc issue

Hi:

The 'Date::Calc' module documentation notes that:

/* begin quote */

"In the current implementation of this package, the selected language is stored in a global variable.

Therefore, when you are using a threaded Perl, this may cause undesired side effects (of one thread always selecting the language for ALL OTHER threads as well).

/* end quote */

Hence, I believe that that describes the first set of messages you report.

For the remainder, you need to examine things further.

Regards!

Re: perl DateCalc & Calc issue

Hi (again) Cyclops:

You need to look (at least) at your 'Pace.pm' module around line 98 and also lie 543. The "uninitialized value" is a warning, but the undefined subroutine constitutes an error.

&Date::DateCalc::check_date

...should be:

&Date::Calc::check_date( ...

...or:

Date::DateCalc::check_date( ...

Regards!

I don't know what module 'Calc.pm' is. In your initial post you mentioned "DateCalc 3.2 & Calc 5.4" which is interesting since the 'Date::Calc' module's current version is in fact 5.4. I can only presume that 'Calc.pm' is something indigenous to your local installation.

My previous post may have confused things. I _should have_ written the following:

Re: perl DateCalc & Calc issue

Hi ,
I tried to debug my perl file, i found the following errors
may be some problem with DateCalc module's month_name_tab function.

Please help me out.

Re: perl DateCalc & Calc issue

I think you're better helped at PerlMonks.org
They are specialized in (beginners) problems like this

perl-5.8.3 is rather old. perl-5.8.9 or perl-5.10.0 are the more current versions.

Date::Calc 5.4 is recent and fine. I never heard of the DateCalc module.

Don't use '&' in front of subroutine calls, unless you know why you want that. In 99.99% of the cases you do not want to use this perl4-like syntax.

Use strict and warnings. Start you script like this:

--8<---
#!/opt/bin/perl

use strict;
use warnings;

-->8---

and perl will show you where what variable caused problems

Re: perl DateCalc & Calc issue

thanks all and sorry for the delayed reply.
Actually i uninstalled the Calc modules removed all the Calc.pm & DateCalc.pm and again reinstalled those modules.
It worked out for me and my application is running fine.
Thanks all.
