in thread My favorite looping mechanism in Perl is:

map! Map! MAP! I love it. I have never used it, and now I'm thinking of all of the extra lines of code I've written over time to do what a simple map does!!!

Thank you!
I think I have a new favorite widget for the week!

    This is the same reaction I had when I discovered map :-) I'm not sure if it is a real looping mechanism (technically speaking): if you check the manpage it says "map - apply a change to a list to get back a new list with the changes". Anyway I think it is very powerful, and very beautiful, and I use whenever I can!

[Corion]: LanX: Maybe have an infinite-loop cmd file? Much easier than trying to manage that from within Perl IMO
[Corion]: Alternatively, relaunch the application from cron (or a Windows cron) every minute
[LanX]: will try infinite loop ...
[Corion]: :START ... goto START
[LanX]: oh .bat you mean?
[LanX]: obscure cult ...
[Corion]: LanX: cmd.exe is just another way to launch Perl
[LanX]: I know its a cult... and I repent it every time
[LanX]: But cygwin comes with path problems and powershell requires too much learning for me
[LanX]: eshell in emacs is often my resort in development
