in reply to My favorite looping mechanism in Perl is:

My favorite construct is the naked block, together with redo and last to trigger restart and exit:

{ blah; blah blah; last if $some_condition; more blah; more blah blah; redo if $some_other_condition; }
There... we've got a middle-exiting loop, guaranteeing at least one execution of the first part. Who says we don't have an easy "do-while" loop!

    This is not an original observation, but you are one sick man. ;-)

    Thanks, Randal, for the insights you have shared in actually USING perl over the years.

    We appreciate it greatly.
