in thread Is it possible to store an arthimetric operator in a variable?

For those curious, this is how I might do it using tie.

#!perl -w use strict; # You could write any kind of function you wanted... # I thought I'd go for multi-operand functions. my %funk; %funk = ( 'Add' => sub { return $_[0] if not defined $_[1]; unshift( @_, shift( @_ ) + shift( @_ ) ); &{$funk{Add}}}, 'Subtract' => sub { return $_[0] if not defined $_[1]; unshift( @_, shift( @_ ) - shift( @_ ) ); &{$funk{Subtract}}}, 'Multiply' => sub { return $_[0] if not defined $_[1]; unshift( @_, shift( @_ ) * shift( @_ ) ); &{$funk{Multiply}}}, 'Divide' => sub { return $_[0] if not defined $_[1]; unshift( @_, shift( @_ ) / shift( @_ ) ); &{$funk{Divide}}}, 'IsEqual' => sub { for ( 1 .. $#_ ) { return 0 if $_[0] != $_[$ +_] } 1 }, 'IsNotEqual' => sub { &{$funk{IsEqual}} ? 0 : 1 }, ); sub Funk::TIESCALAR { bless \$_[1], $_[0] } sub Funk::FETCH { ${$_[0]} } sub Funk::STORE { ${$_[0]}=$funk{$_[1]} } my $op; tie $op, 'Funk', $op; #Usage: # You now simply decide the operator you want and pass it the args: # $op = 'Add'; # my $two = $op->( 1, 1 ); # Test loop: my @testArgs = ( 3, 3 ); for ( sort keys %funk ) { $op = $_; my $answer = $op->( @testArgs ); # print the result: $^A = ""; formline "\@>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> = $answer\n", "$_( " . join( ', ', @testArgs ) . " )"; print $^A; } __END__
Additional code could be added to do argument checking and the like.
