I have no problem, if you don't understand

Still dodging the question I see. I'm surprised that you'd bother emulating a feature you cannot describe a use for.

    LOL ... =)

    You know the story where Einstein was asked by a journalist if he can explain Relativity Theory in 10 minutes?

    ) Nota Bene I'm not saying I'm Einstein and that FP is RT... =)

      And *still* dodging the question. You don't have to answer with the secrets of the universe; a single, simple, useful example of use would suffice.

      It is easy to see you've seen the flaws in your own reasoning when you choose to deflect and distract rather than engage.

        No, you're still ignoring the answers I already gave.

        It's a meditation about using Perl as (partial) DSL for Ruby.

        Again, the benefit of a shorter syntax is better understandable within a Ruby context, where passing callbacks is integral part of the language.

        Mastering this technique in Perl takes much longer because a beginner has to understand prototypes and coderefs. Furthermore it's inconsistent in Perl because you can't use prototypes on methods.

        And I already admitted that I wouldn't use this implementation in Perl.

        Finally, debating about "beauty" of syntax is in the eye of the beholder, so lets agree that we disagree.

        ) Personally, it took me years before I started to hack Perl in this way. Ruby people have to learn it from the start.

        ) And I don't like your inquisitory attitude to fight everything you don't understand in mosnter threads.
