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!

[Corion]: Writing these import plugins was really nice though - in about 2 hours, I had imports for CSV, YAML and JSON, and adding XLS(X), SQLite (or DBI) data sources is also trivial. I'm idly wondering about separating the plugin into transport+parser, so ...
[Corion]: ... http:// URLs could be retrieved and then parsed, but I think that that would be overkill for a toy static site generator ;)
[Corion]: This is a toy clone of Jekyll, currently named MrHyde. But maybe I'll change that name to Jokel / Yokel, or some other play on the name , still mildly unfunny ;)
