See Scope::Guard, which is designed to do exactly that, you create it with a subroutine to run when it goes out of scope...

use strict; use warnings;
use Scope::Guard;
sub foo {
my $blah = shift; my$sg = Scope::Guard->new( sub {
print "This runs at the end of the scope\n";
} );
print "Doing some other stuff now...\n";
}

Wasn't operator overloading designed by Satan for evil C++ programmers to torture each other in the hell that they have created for themselves. Or something?

 [choroba]: needed everywhere, available rarely [LanX]: Question: starting a script from an icon in Windows, but after C-c the window closes ... what I want is to restart in the cmd.exe. Recommendations? [Corion]: LanX: What do you mean by "restart in the cmd.exe" ? [Corion]: Do you want to launch a script and keep the command prompt/console window open? [Corion]: Do you want to wait for a key press before closing the window? [LanX]: I want the command line in the history [tye]: -Mouse [Corion]: Option a) would mean launching cmd.exe /k c:\path\to\ batchfile- launching-perl- script.cmd. Option b) would be to add pause as the last line of said batch file. [LanX]: First day after holidays ... and already stressed by the fact that colleagues changed stuff without communication ... apparently I'm the only one trying to fight entropy [Corion]: LanX: The command is always in the history if you typed it in before. If you didn't type the command into the command line, it will not be there. I think there is doskey which can stuff command lines into the history
