Post #3 of 5
The problem was due to the fact that if you copy the following text from this forum, you will get a | followed by a space followed by a |, not a | followed by a |:
<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial,Helvetica,sans serif">code:</font><HR>
open(FOO, ">bar") | | die;
And to Perl, that ends up being a syntax error. UBB folk -- any idea as to why | | gets a space inserted in it?
