in reply to Re^3: my $x or my ($x)
in thread my $x or my ($x)

I prefer slicing. Instead of:

my (undef, $foo, undef, $bar) = @array;

or

(undef, my $foo, undef, my $bar) = @array;

do:

my ($foo, $bar) = @array[1,3];

e.g.

my ($size, $mtime) = (stat $filename)[7,9];

[ambrus]: choroba: heh heh... I have such a doc bug report somewhere. fixed by now.
[Corion]: Once upon a time I had automatic tests for checking the synopsis, but I stopped doing that because the setup was too fragile on CPAN testers for extracting code from the SYNOPSIS.
[Corion]: Maybe I should move the extraction of the code from the SYNOPSIS section into the author tests, or something like that...
[choroba]: Corion Sounds reasonable
[Corion]: choroba: Yeah - I basically have the same for regenerating README and README.mkdown already, except that I do that in Makefile.PL, but I guess one or the other thing should somehow work ;)
[ambrus]: was this bug: https://rt.cpan. org/Public/Bug/ Display.html?id= 59814
