in reply to syntax error - WHERE?

you can't insert a code-block within the array-literal, hence keep the semicolon out.

DB<106> @x= map {int rand 10 } 1..10 => (5, 5, 7, 6, 1, 5, 3, 5, 7, 7) DB<107> [ sort @x ] => [1, 3, 5, 5, 5, 5, 6, 7, 7, 7] DB<108> [ sort @x; ] syntax error at (eval 59)[multi_perl5db.pl:644] line 2, at EOF

if you need more than a simple statement use do { BLOCK }.

update

NB: the comment alone is no problem, cause it's ignored while parsing and not part of any statement

lanx@nc10-ubuntu:~$ perl -c sub my_filter { my ($hash) = @_; return [ sort {$b <=> $a} keys %{$hash} #Reverse sort ]; } - syntax OK

[holli]: see moritz, the , how do i put it, robust charme of this site is what separates the wheat from the chaff ^^
[LanX]: I'm willing to improve the code, but we have a götterdämmerung at the moment, Corion is the only active god for some time now
[moritz]: and everybody is like "if you just copy 250 lines of ugly JS into your free nodelet, and happent to know about it, there is a 40% that this workaround kinda works, sometimes"
[moritz]: ... "so there is no need to do anything"
[LanX]: and the code is a bit of a mess
[LanX]: moritz, no ... jsut copy one line of my code
[moritz]: I'm still using the CB, because ambrus's #cbstream makes it bearable
[LanX]: ... the rest is loaded from a node
[holli]: the best course of action would be to transfer the data to something well tested. even if it isnt perl based
[moritz]: but even if I had all the time in the world, I wouldn't spend much on perlmonks
