Simple question and I'm sure there's a very simple answer somewhere out there ... In the same way one can set a job information variable using VBScript, is there a similar way to do it using PERL? i.e. I need the PERL equivalent of the VBScript statement "Watch.setJobInfo 9, variableName".

Thanks, Phil.

Thanks LAPD. I am familiar with the "$Watch->..." notation but nothing is documented anywhere regarding specific usage of it. The link you've supplied contains similar examples of the syntax but not what I'm looking for. I need the exact syntax to set a job information variable, i.e., is it something along the lines of "$Watch->SetJobInfo(9, variableName)"?

Thanks again, Phil.

Phil,

The exact syntax for ActivePERL is
Code:
$Watch->SetJobInfo(9, "This is my new value")
Let's say you wanted to store in JobInfo 9 a value that is currently stored in JobInfo 8, you'd then use the following syntax:
Code:
$Watch->SetJobInfo(9, $Watch->GetJobInfo(8))
I hope this helps.
