in reply to Returning two lists from a sub

There is just one return list.

In the spirit of horrible solutions, you could pass the second one out-of-band. Right. But there's no sane reason to do that, is there?

So, in the spirit of insane solutions, have one more:

use strict; use warnings; sub getlists(\@\@); getlists( my @a, my @b ); print join(" ",@a),"\n",join(" ",@b); sub getlists(\@\@) { my ($foo, $bar) = @_; @$foo = (1,2,3); @$bar = (4,5,6); }

Most horrible yet? ;-)

print "Just another Perl ${\(trickster and hacker)},"
The Sidhekin proves Sidhe did it!

[Discipulus]: oh thanks, i'm always at well as the ratchet or bucket
[Corion]: But I'm slowly starting to get into programming again - yesterday I translated my talk for YAPC::E (in Amsterdam) to English, and decided to put my Jekyll-clone to rest for the time being
[Corion]: Discipulus++ # being well is like being earnest
[marto]: hopefully next year I'll be in a position to go to Perly things in Europe :)
[Corion]: Maybe I'll use the Real Jekyll a bit to get a feel for how it actually works, and to get annoyed by it ;)
[Corion]: marto: That would be cool :) There is no kids care at Perly events unfortunately, so it's not entirely family friendly
[Corion]: I think I should define a set of (say) five projects through which I rotate from time to time, just to prevent myself from being bored/annoyed by the problems they get stuck in ;)
[marto]: Corion, not bringing the kids would make it ideal :P
[marto]: a suggestion, have one project in the list that isn't programming/perl related
[Corion]: marto: Yeah, things are more parent-friendly the way they are ;))
