Subject weird escmode behaviour
Date Thu, 04 Jul 2002 11:40:28 GMT
Hi there,

I wonder if anyone (well, Gerald probably) could explain this unexpected
behaviour when I run embperl in two slighly different ways:

I have in my environment EMBPERL_ESCMODE=0.  When I run "
escmode.epl" (where escmode.epl just outputs $escmode), I can see that
escmode is set to 0.

However when I run where is the following perl script.


use HTML::Embperl;

escmode.epl tells me that $escmode is set to 3.  Shouldn't it still be set
to 0?

I think you should find that this behavious can easily be replicated.
