( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
When I see prototypes, I hear a little voice in my head, like I was James Woods in Videodrome: "Kill them. Kill them all. Kill your prototypes." I even have a script that strips them out. The number of occasions where I've had to use a prototype is less than a few dozen, and even then, it was mostly bad Laziness. Most of the ones I see are pointless, such as prototypes on object methods.

The whole automatic scalar conversion thing really burns me. Or at least cramps my style. They don't even work properly, either, so at best, they're broken, at worst, dangerous.

Now as for lvalue subroutines...

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
