Re^2: passing arrays to subroutines

in thread passing arrays to subroutines

There are two ways of passing data to a subroutine:

- call by value
- call by reference

Actually, there's also:

- call by name
- call by copy-restore
- call by result
- call by push value
- call by need
- call by macro expansion

See Parameter (Computer Science) on Wikipedia.

Most (all?) of these can be done in Perl. In Perl, it really comes down to two things:

1) Parameters are passed as a list of scalars.
2) The caller and the callee have to agree on what those scalars mean.

[Corion]: Yay! As I had to reset my phone again, I now also back up my SMS automatically. Highly conveniently, there is a program to back up my SMS to my IMAP server as mails ;)
[1nickt]: Corion this is an android phone? If so, are you encountering problems with recent upgrades? Lately my phone dies suddenly quite often, seemingly coredumps caused by interaction of two actions, eg phone playing a sound and user swiping simultaneously :-/
[Corion]: 1nickt: Yeah, it's Android, but it's CM 11, so fairly old. I'm looking for a newer (china) phone, but I think I'll wait until Oreo ROMs get out for them
[Corion]: Otherwise, the Vernee Mars looks tempting
[Corion]: ... but alas, no Oreo support in sight yet, and I prefer to flash a stock Android over the custom ROMs, and Oreo promises to make the userland more maintainable.
[LanX]: Corion: shouldn't pmdev have permission to view code of nodelets?
[1nickt]: And of course everything is "unlocked" in EU, right?
[1nickt]: I think there are far more choices than in the US
LanX You don't have access to  Function Nodelet.
