No, I don't have the fall-through capability, natively. One would have to have the functions themselves call each other to gain fall-through. (If 'A' would fall through to 'B', then A() does a return B(@_); at the end.) This is somewhat counter-intuitive and very tightly coupled, but it does have benefits.

The primary benefit I see, apart from the dynamic nature of it, is that I can pass args to my switch clauses. In addition, I've separated out my switch clauses from one another, which means that they can be arbitrarily long and not go over-long within the same function.

[1nickt]: You must twist and pull! If you burn, use tea tree oil etc, the tick barfs (inside your blood vessel) and you get all the loevely bacteria in his gut transferred to yours.
[1nickt]: tweesers work just fine
[hippo]: Hope everyone else is enjoying their lunch too.
[1nickt]: However, note that it takes between 2 and 4 hours for a tick to be able to start transmitting bacteria. So even if it has burrowed in and started eating, if you get it soon you should be OK.
[perldigious]: 1nickt: No more red meat! It would be more humane to just kill you, wouldn't it! :-)
[1nickt]: Just don't make it barf.
[1nickt]: perldigious that's exactly what my stepson says.
[1nickt]: the tick that can make you a vegetarian
[perldigious]: Your Mother: Yeah, I have a tool for ticks that I use (mostly on my dogs thankfully), but it's just a cheapo one I got from my vets office... it works pretty good though.
erix saw a tick in a natural history museum collected from the scrotum of the curator (it was removed)
