in thread More while issues

Considering the vast majority of my variables look like $dr5[$rn] and $datay{$data[$drp]}, $chntot (change total) is clear as day.

We really need smileys here. - I wonder what chntot means in Nepalese.

This is the latest working version BTW

sub rankdwn { my ( $yb, $chntot, $incrsdel ) = @_; my $cnd_a = $aod[$yb] =~ tr/a/a/; my $cnd_y = $aod[$yb] =~ tr/y/y/; my $letter = 'a'; if ( ( $cnd_a + $cnd_y ) <= $incrsdel ) { $aod[$yb] =~ s/a/y/gsxm; $cnd_y += $cnd_a; $letter = 'c'; } while ( $cnd_y < $incrsdel ) { my $xda = int rand( $chntot + 1 ); if ( substr( $aod[$yb], $xda, 1 ) eq $letter ) { substr $aod[$yb], $xda, 1, 'y'; $cnd_y++; } } return; }
