'format not terminated' in MacPerl5

Should I be aware of anything before using formats under MacPerl?

When I try to compile/execute a script containing a format, MacPerl tells me, that it is not terminated properly, eventhough the format is terminated with a dot (.). I have tryed terminating with dot-newline and dot-newline-return and dot-return combinations, but nothing seems to work.

What should I do?

Hi,

When the format definition is located in the middle of a script the problem does not occur.

If your format definition is located at the very end of your script, then simply insert a carriage return or two after your dot. It'll fix the problem.
