 FAQ: Can't find string terminator "EOF" anywhere before EOF at... [ Reply ] [ Back to Index ] Top Bottom

When you get this error message, it typically means that you didn't upload the script in
ASCII mode,
or if you installed it directly on a Unix system, that you didn't convert it from its
original DOS format
to a regular Unix text format.

What happens is that the file still contains carriage returns at the end of each line (^M
in some editors),
so when perl looks for a line that only contains the string 'EOF' -with *nothing* in front
or after it-
it doesn't find it...

Solution : convert the script from its DOS format to a Unix format, either by uploading it
in ASCII mode
from your PC, or by removing the carriage returns on the Unix system. You can do that for
instance by
typing the following command in your shell :
perl -pi -e 'tr/\r//d' awebvisit.txt

People running the script on a Windows platform shouldn't have this problem.

That didn't work for me? I'm using Linux with Perl 5.8.0. If I comment it out then it
works fine but it won't print out my usage. Any other ideas?

Thanks,

Ace

You could replace the line
$helpmsg = <<'EOF';
with this line :
$helpmsg = q{

And the line
EOF
with this line :
};

That is, basically replace the <<'EOF'; .... EOF with q{ ... };

When you start the script with your logfile(s) as parameters, you should then see a
message on stderr saying :
Reading logfile entries...
Line 5000
Line 10000
and so on until it has read all logfile entries, followed by 
Read <NNN> entries from <start date> to <end date>
etc.

this suggestion worked for me.

EOF
with this line :

I met this problem on Windows platform too. I do just as you told that replaced the line 
use Inline C => <<'END_C';
with :
use Inline C => q{
and 
END_C 
with };
then got through.

However there is still a problem:

This innvocation of Inline requires the Parse::RecDescent module.
Can't locate Parse/RecDescent.pm in @INC (@INC contains: D:\temp\java\_Inline\li
b D:/Perl/site/lib D:/Perl/lib .) at D:/Perl/site/lib/Inline/C/ParseRecDescent.p
m line 14.

 at D:/Perl/site/lib/Inline/C.pm line 322
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at Hello2.pl line 5.

and When I run other program, alway met this problem.Could anyone kindly help me?

You have to get the module "RecDescent.pm"
Activestate makes this very easy with its perl package Manager where you can search for
modules that you dont have and install them.
