One of the webwork problems is throwing the following error -
ERRORS from evaluating PG file:
Error detected while loading [PG]/macros/compoundProblem.pl: PG_macro_file_eval detected error at line 123 of file [PG]/lib/PGloadfiles.pm Can't use 'defined(%hash)' (Maybe you should just omit the defined()?) at line 585 of [PG]/macros/compoundProblem.pl, chunk 1. The calling package is PGloadfiles Died within PGloadfiles::compile_file called at line 171 of [PG]/lib/PGloadfiles.pm from within PGloadfiles::loadMacros called at line 514 of [PG]/macros/PG.pl from within main::loadMacros called at line 14 of (eval 1626)
The OS is ubuntu 16.04 and perl version is 5.22 and the pg file uses compoundProblem.pl. This used to work last term with debian 8 and perl 5.20.
I noticed the following -
from debian 8 -
defined(%hash) is deprecated at compoundProblem.pl line 583.
(Maybe you should just omit the defined()?)
from ubuntu 16.04 -
Can't use 'defined(%hash)' (Maybe you should just omit the defined()?) at compoundProblem.pl line 583.
Looks like a warning on the old perl version turned out to be an error on the new version. I was wondering if there is a work around for this or may be an updated version of compoundProblem.pl available. Thanks a lot.
