in thread What training do YOU need?

ive needed the construct

For the record I didn't mean for (;;) but rather the while () {} continue {} construct which once or twice ive found has come in useful. For instance

while (<$fh>) { s/foo/bar/ and next; s/yada/yada/ and next; #lots more of the same } continue { print $_; }
Which _can_ be written without the continue, but when the innerds get a bit complex the continue can result in simpler code. (Sorry, but I had to make it clear ive never written a perl script with for (;;) in it ;-)

Actually, scratch that, I'd be cheering.

No disagreement there... It was that construct that seriously put me off of C when I first encountered it. In fact I still haven't quite got over the trauma of having to use it. :-)

Now, the question is will Perl 6 have the obscene construct in it? My guess is probably... *sigh*
