Subject: warnings produced when tables=>1 and paras=>1
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 622b
Hi, I use HTML::FromText v2.05 under perl v5.8.4 (built for i386-linux-thread-multi) on a Debian Sarge box as part of Apache::MiniWiki under mod_perl and always run with warnings on. I get masses of warnings in the server logs originating from the table formatting code in HTML::FromText. I produced a minimal test case (attached) which is typical of the data we get. It produces a number of warnings when tables=>1 and paras=>1 (see attached) which is how it is used within Apache::MiniWiki. I'm sorry I can't fix it myself - I wouldn't know where to start! Regards, Michael Erskine Nottingham Perl Mongers group leader.
