Ah, you are completely correct and it works happily. However I wonder if you could answer another question. I am trying to find an op that gets called at the 'end' of every loop, just before the next iteration begins. Is there any such beast? The B module seems to imply that pp_redo is called, but in my tests it doesn't seem to be. Any ideas?

    It sounds like you are looking for the opcode equivalent of the 'continue' statement. From a casual look at the differences in the output of these two commands:

    perl -MO=Concise -e 'while ($z == 1) { $x=2;} continue {$y=3;}' perl -MO=Concise -e 'while ($z == 1) { $x=2;}'
    I would guess that the opcode is 'pp_next'.

      Well, I modified pp_next by adding a "DIE" call in the middle of it but no loop I tried could trigger it. Doesn't seem to be the one I want.

        There is no such op. If you add a continue block, you'll notice that lineseq has three arguments/statements instead of just two. If you want to run something at the end of every loop, alter the optree to wire your op in.
