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

Right...I think. If I need to use the value of $_ in a nested loop, I'd just assign it to another variable:

for (0 .. 10) { my $outer_elem = $_; for (0 .. 20) { my $inner_elem = $_; do_something($outer_elem, $inner_elem); } } # Yeah, I know doing this is better: for my $outer_elem (0 .. 10) { for my $inner_elem (0 .. 20) { do_something($outer_elem, $inner_elem); } }

So I guess the loop counter would just keep a count of the most immediate loop it's in. I don't really know--this is all just how I would expect such a variable to work (if it existed).

So if we pretend $. is the loop counter:

foreach my $elem1 (@array1) { my $outer_idx = $.; foreach my $elem2 (@array2) { my $inner_idx = $.; # Blablabla... } }

I should emphasize: I'm not pushing for this to become a feature or anything. I was just curious if there was anything like this (and this is how I would imagine it might work if there was).
