----------------------------------------------------------------- [Please enter your report here] The following does NOT write anything to screen. When I wrote this in Perl 5.004 on NetBSD and in Win95, it worked fine. # format STDOUT = @<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< $name .. $name = "John"; write $name; When running in debug, it showed no signs of errors.
