This is the error that I am getting when I type the ';' after <STDIN>....
If I leave off the ';' after <STDIN>- then I get the 'newline' syntax error
-- This error is so basic could it be an environment issue... I pasted code in from the first reply...
uhollins@uhollins-laptop:~/Perl_Scripts$ . name2
what is your name?
bash: name2: line 3: syntax error near unexpected token `;'
bash: name2: line 3: `$name = <STDIN>;'
This is the name2 code....
printf "\nwhat is your name? \n";
$name = <STDIN>;
printf "your name is $name";
