Run prefix for script Can't Post


I have a script what converts .netxml and .gpsxl into a kml file.
( )

But when i run the script: perl it says that i must prefix .netxml and .gpsxml. Can someone explaine to me what prefix is and what i must do in this situation?

Re: [Efficent] Run prefix for script [In reply to] Can't Post

I have no idea what this is all about, but looking at the code, I can see that you have this line:

my $prefix = $ARGV[0] or die "Please specify a prefix for gps and xml files";

This means that you need to supply a "prefix" as a command line argument when you launch the program. A "prefix" is presumably the name of the gps and xml files without the extension.

So you should probably run the program as follows:

perl file_name

when "file_name is the name of your files without the ".gps" or ".xml" extensions.
