 lacy_s@m... - Maybe one for the FAQ  4/4/2003; 2:59:24 PM (reads: 2110, responses: 5) When I bring up a page in WebWork, everything seems to come up fine, but at the bottom I get a lot of warning messages such as: Current time: 4/4/03 at 2:49 PM Compiler warnings: * Use of uninitialized value in join or string at (eval 13) line 15. ##More details: -------- CGI::p called at /usr/local/webwork/system/cgi/cgi-scripts/profHousekeeping.pl line 82 ----------------------------------- * Use of uninitialized value in join or string at (eval 14) line 15. ##More details: -------- CGI::hr called at /usr/local/webwork/system/cgi/cgi-scripts/profHousekeeping.pl line 93 [and variations on CGI:tag] CGI:: is installed and up-to-date per CPAN. This is on a RedHat 8.0 install. Like I said, the pages come up fine, but warnings similar to the above show up at the bottom. Some pages have only one, others have several. Any ideas?

I asked our interns to lokk into this ---maybe they will have an idea. Here's one thing to check. Log into one of our courses (e.g. http://webwork.math.rochester.edu:8088/mth161/) as a practice user (e.g. login as practice2 with password practice2) and compare how our pages look to how your pages look. Do your pages have the same horizontal rules (CGI::hr) as ours? Note that we may not use CGI::hr to generate all hoizontal rules so you should compare pages where you get the CGI::hr warning message.

Hi Scott,

What version of CGI.pm and Perl are you using? Note the message from http://stein.cshl.org/WWW/software/CGI/#bugs stating that uninitialized variable warnings under Perl 5.8 was fixed in CGI.pm version 2.88.
