in reply to how to get alias name of anonymous sub?

As noone seem to have pointed already, there's one important module on that subject which is Sub::Name. It should allow you to:

use Sub::Name foreach (keys %news_sites) { *{$_} = subname "generator_for_$_" => sub {...} }

But note that you seem to be missing one more important concept here, which is the concept of closures

foreach my $key (keys %news_sites) { *{$key} = sub { ... # as the $key variable was declared in the outer scope of the s +ubroutine, # if the code reference survives longer than this scope it will + retain its # value warn $key; # this will warn the value used when defining this s +ub. } }

    I really missed the closures.Thanks for your remind.I heard the concept of closures before,but I could't find the usage of it in perl , so i did't understand it very much . I think this a good example for me.Thanks ruoso.
