in thread Passing a variable recursively

Thanks for the fast reply. For the 'recursive-thing': Yes, you're right. What I meant was what I think you call cascade: So if a module uses a module and that module uses a module again...

But then I think you're right that it just comes down to a Global State.

And trust me, In this case, I would also already be happy with that! :-)

I'm gonna check if I'll get you're suggested code to work.

Thanks again!

The great mistake is to anticipate the outcome of the engagement; Let nature take it's course, and your tools will strike at the right moment.

[choroba]: The problem was bigger, as the test tried to call a method that didn't exist anymore
[marinersk]: :: ducking ::
[choroba]: because, someone renamed the method, but didn't notice it was used in the test, as the test was skipped
[marinersk]: Well, if the method doesn't exist, it would be hard to pass the test.
[choroba]: later, someone removed the new method, as all its usage places were safe, but didn't notice the test still used the old name
[choroba]: fortunately, it wasn't that hard to replace the method and fix a few remaining failures due to the changes we did to the codebase over the years
[marinersk]: choroba Sounds like a process improvement opportunity; tests may not all need to be run, but they should all be compiled with perl -c before check-in/promotion happens.
[choroba]: so, now I have the test, so I can start making changes in the code. Back to the original ticket, yay!
[marinersk]: I definitely love it when my $current_taask=& taskPop(); if ($current_task eq $original_task) { } is true.
[marinersk]: s/taask/task/g;
