problem and comment with Perl scripts
Authored by: edrush on Mar 20, '07 04:42:07PM
A problem and a comment: First, it seems to me that it would be useless to use one's main email account, because the thief would see it on the stolen computer, while the only way you would then see it is to check your ISP's Web-based mail site. Better, perhaps, is to set up a Yahoo (or other) account that does not automatically show up in your mail app.

Now the problem: When I tried to run ./get_IP.pl, I got this error:

Possible unintended interpolation of @mymail in string at ./get_IP.pl line 36.
Possible unintended interpolation of @mymail in string at ./get_IP.pl line 37.
Global symbol "@mymail" requires explicit package name at ./get_IP.pl line 36.
Global symbol "@mymail" requires explicit package name at ./get_IP.pl line 37.
Execution of ./get_IP.pl aborted due to compilation errors.

where my email addy is "ed@mymail.us." My script's punctuation is exactly as in the sample script.
