( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Hi kingkongrevenge

The book Mastering Algorithms with Perl by Jon Orwant, Jarkko Hietaniemi, and John Macdonald provides the code to compute several probability distributions (the geometric distribution included). The source code is available at http://examples.oreilly.com/maperl/ (once you uncompress the file, the code will be in the file "distributions" inside the ch14 folder).

I hope this helps.

Cheers,

lin0

    [Eily]: It can also be used to force a copy, and remove magic from a variable
    [Eily]: there was a post some time ago about variable coming from regex taking more space than the same string defined directly IIRC
    [Eily]: and if there's XS, make sure the scalar holds a string representation, that sounds like bad practice though (forcing that on the call side)
    [choroba]: You should never pass $1 without double quotes to a sub
    [choroba]: or "I should never", at least
    [choroba]: that's not the sub's business
    [Eily]: choroba but does $name = $1 solve the issue ?
