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

Subroutine can return both scalar and list context values, so return a list context values as in our case here. One can use wantarray() to tell which context as stated in the perldoc -f wantarray documentation, and I quote "Returns true if the context of the currently executing subroutine or "eval" is looking for a list value. Returns false if the context is looking for a scalar. Returns the undefined value if the context is looking for no value (void context)."

E.g:

my @values=get_values(); # subroutine called print @values; ## print 12345 not 1,2,3,4,5 sub get_values{ my @init_val=grep $_=>1..5; if(wantarray){ # test list context return @init_val; }else{return join",",split} }

    [marto]: "Eugenie Scott, executive director of the National Center for Science Education, dubbed this approach the Gish gallop, describing it as "where the creationist is allowed to run on for 45 minutes or an hour, spewing forth torrents of error that the
    [marto]: evolutionist hasn't a prayer of refuting in the format of a debate." She also criticized Gish for failing to answer objections raised by his opponents"
    [erix]: one would hope evolutionists haven't any prayers anyway
    [marto]: obviously someone could be religious, but not creationist
    [erix]: "Nothing in Intelligent Design makes sense except in the light of Creationism" <-- I made that one up myself (free after Dobzhansky )
    [erix]: yes. Deplorable marto, deplorable.
    [marto]: the situation seemed similar to this one, majority of the contributrions are nonsense, doesn't address any questions ...
    [marto]: meh, I've been called worse :P
