Rt-remind error

Hi,

I’m trying to run rt-remind in my ticketing system and get the following
error.

perl ./rtremind.pm

Error
syntax error at ./rtremind.pm line 42, near "my"
Execution of ./rtremind.pm aborted due to compilation errors.

This part of the rt-remind script is where it’s having trouble:

my(%map) = (
‘Nobody’ => ‘YOU@YOURDOMAIN’,
‘root’ => ‘YOU@YOURDOMAIN’,
‘queue1,Nobody’ => ‘ANOTHER@YOURDOMAIN’,
);

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Bill

Space after the my?

Hi Bill,

That line is syntactically correct perl (with perl 5.8.8):

huws@cli-237 ~ $ cat test.pl
my(%map) = (
‘Nobody’ => ‘YOU@YOURDOMAIN’,
‘root’ => ‘YOU@YOURDOMAIN’,
‘queue1,Nobody’ => ‘ANOTHER@YOURDOMAIN’,
);
huws@cli-237 ~ $
huws@cli-237 ~ $ perl -c test.pl
test.pl syntax OK

I would have a look at the lines preceding that and check them for
errors. Failing that run ‘perl -c rtremind.pm’ and see what the perl
compiler thinks is wrong.

Thanks, Huw.

The only line, besides the comments, that precedes this line is:

use lib qw (C:\Program Files\OurInternet\Request
Tracker\rt\lib\RT\Interface)

I ran ‘perl -c rtremind.pm’ and came up with the same error message.

Could it be that I have to define what this code is asking for? I.e.
where it says YOU@YOURDOMAIN, I have to put my email address there.

The semicolon was the syntax problem then.

I find it interesting that the path you specify in the use statement
isn’t listed in @INC. At least not if it is case sensitive. Having
never used Perl on Windows, I assume it is but can’t say for sure. In
any event, it is mixing C:\Program Files in with /usr/local/packages.
Perhaps your path needs to be quoted there?

Candelario, Bill wrote:

I haven’t used Perl in Windows either but am learning as I go. This is
the tough part because I know on a Linux machine this would be a lot
easier.

According to some of the threads I’ve been reading, they said to include
the path in the beginning when using windows. Not sure if this is the
correct way.

When I execute ‘perl -V’ I can see the default libraries for perl. How
do I modify the default libraries? Maybe this is where the editing has
to take place.From: Drew Barnes [mailto:barnesaw@ucrwcu.rwc.uc.edu]

Thanks Drew,

I got it figured out. I had to define all the libraries in the
beginning of the script. Now I have a question on global parameters.
Where do I define them in the script. For example, where would I plug
in the email addresses of the technicians, our email server, etc.
