Perl-fu problems -
Hi all -
I have been working on a perl script to generate L-systems. So far it's been
going well, until today, when, out of the blue, I began getting the following
error message when I try to access the script from the menu. The error is:
l-sys.pl: Unable to grok '0' as colour specifier at (eval 3) line 666 (ERROR)
The weird thing is that the script runs just fine if I start the perl server
and invoke the script from the command line.
I have had similar problems with perl-fu before, but they went away after I
rebooted. I suppose I can wait until tomorrow to see if all is well after a
complete shutdown, but this time even a warm reboot failed to resolve the
I have tried turning on all the perl tracing available from
Gimp::set_trace(TRACE_ALL);, but this never gets invoked, because the error
apparently happens before the script is given control. Naturally, there is no
line 666 in the script itself.
