My ISP - upgraded the Apache servers and in doing so - the CGI/Perl script below that worked before since they didn't require use strict now does not - since I uncommented out the use strict - I'm getting two errors - at first I was getting: Global symbol "@allgifs" requires explicit package name errors for each of my variables - which went away once I added these lines:
my allgifs;
my row;
my col;
my imagemap;
my item;
my topLeftX;
my topLeftY;
my bottomRightX;
my bottomRightY;

Now I am getting No such class allgifs for each of my variables - which I'm not sure how to remedy.

Here is the full code:

#!/usr/bin/perl5 -wT
#use strict;
#use warnings;
#use CGI qw(:standard);

#require "cgi-lib.pl";

use strict;
use warnings;
use CGI qw(:standard);
use CGI::Carp qw(warningsToBrowser fatalsToBrowser);
require "cgi-lib.pl";

my allgifs;
my row;
my col;
my imagemap;
my item;
my topLeftX;
my topLeftY;
my bottomRightX;
my bottomRightY;

opendir THISDIR, "smallClocks";
@allgifs = grep !/^\.\.?$/, readdir THISDIR;
closedir THISDIR;
#@allgifs = reverse @allgifs;

$row = 0;
$col = 0;

$imagemap  = "<MAP NAME=\"pictureTable\">\n";
foreach $item(@allgifs) {

    $item =~ s/.gif//gi;

    $topLeftX     = ($col*36);
    $topLeftY     = ($row*50);
    $bottomRightX = ($col*36) + 32;
    $bottomRightY = ($row*50) + 32;
    $imagemap .= "<AREA SHAPE=\"rect\" COORDS=\"$topLeftX,$topLeftY,$bottomRightX,$bottomRightY\" HREF=\"cgi-bin/2.cgi?id=$item\">\n";
    $col = $col+1;
    if ($col == 6) {
$imagemap .= "</MAP>\n";

For this I take this is Perl code and read http://perldoc.perl.org/perlvar.html as a refresher.

On line 14 you called out allgifs as a variable.
Later it seems you added @ and that would be an array.
Maybe it's just a matter of line 14 defining what it actually is.

Me? No way a Perl expert.


I got through the error by setting the array/variables as such:

my @allgifs;
my $row;
my $col;
my $imagemap;
my $item;
my $topLeftX;
my $topLeftY;
my $bottomRightX;
my $bottomRightY;
