in reply to Re: shift implicit dereference
in thread shift implicit dereference

Another place a unary plus is often useful is to protect against the effects of the fat comma:

use constant MONIKER => 'name'; my %hash1 = ( +MONIKER => 'Monica' ); # compared with... my %hash2 = ( MONIKER => 'Monica' ); use Data::Dumper; print Dumper(\%hash1, \%hash2);
use Moops; class Cow :rw { has name => (default => 'Ermintrude') }; say Cow->new->name

    I get the same results as Sören. I'm using v5.18.1 (darwin-thread-multi-2level).

    (MONIKER() => 'Monica') produces 'name' => 'Monica' in the Dumper output.

    -- Ken

      or maybe putting in parens is more obvious?

      DB<117> use constant MONIKER =>"name" DB<118> %hash1 = ( (MONIKER) => 'Monica' ); => ("name", "Monica") DB<119> $hash1{ (MONIKER) } => "Monica" DB<142> [map { my $y = uc; ({$y => 1}) } "a".."c"] => [{ A => 1 }, { B => 1 }, { C => 1 }] DB<143> print ((1==0) ? "true" : "false") => 1 false DB<144> sub tst { ${ (shift) } } DB<145> tst \"a" => "a"

    That's looking very nice but...

    $VAR1 = { 'MONIKER' => 'Monica' }; $VAR2 = { 'MONIKER' => 'Monica' }; $ perl -v This is perl 5, version 14, subversion 2 (v5.14.2) built for i686-linu +x-gnu-thread-multi-64int ...

      Confirmed, same result with 5.10.1 on my shared hosting account.

      $ ./ $VAR1 = { 'MONIKER' => 'Monica' }; $VAR2 = { 'MONIKER' => 'Monica' }; $ perl -v This is perl, v5.10.1 (*) built for x86_64-linux-thread-multi
      On time, cheap, compliant with final specs. Pick two.

[atcroft]: james28909: That particular questions was a bit of trick, actually (depending on the country you are in). More interesting is, if you are trying to subtract from an epoch time, for instance, you might have to consider when/if DST occurs for a location,
[atcroft]: because you may have to adjust the number of seconds you change from an epoch from 86400 (not to mention leap seconds)....
[atcroft]: james28909: Although if your program is using a database, you might be able to "pass the buck" to the database and ask it to do the date change for you....
