in reply to Re: How does next label work?
in thread How does next label work?

The OP asked "How does next label work?" and provided an edge case example to emphasize his problem.

Well that's perfectly normal ...and a well documented behavior is hardly "golf".

And BTW Basic BLOCKs with redo at the end

{ ... ; redo if COND; }
are a far saner way to realize do-while-loops.
do { ... } while (COND)

EDIT:

Iím of the opinion that especially those coworkers which can't use perldoc -f should be restricted to clean the coffee maker. ;-)

Cheers Rolf

[james28909]: i thiught you were going to say make both hands into a fist and puch yourself in the face
[atcroft]: .oO(Sorry, I probably should have said take two normal hands....)
[atcroft]: james28909: No, unless you are a politician, I wouldn't say that (and even if you are, I still probably wouldn't say that).
[james28909]: i mean how hard can it be? its just subtracting days lol
[atcroft]: james28909: What about October 5, 1582?
[stevieb]: atcroft: "Make both hands into fists..."... is something my Ma taught me in our native lang, but I was to ignorant and young to pay attention. Thanks for that :)
[atcroft]: stevieb: Sad to say that I only recently learned that particular trick, but I have since found it very useful.... :)
[james28909]: ill be back with a solution eventually
[stevieb]: it's a reminder to re-inforce it :P
