local

See the current Perl documentation for local.

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:


local - create a temporary value for a global variable (dynamic scoping)



local EXPR



A local modifies the listed variables to be local to the enclosing block, file, or eval. If more than one value is listed, the list must be placed in parentheses. See Temporary Values via local() for details, including issues with tied arrays and hashes.

You really probably want to be using my() instead, because local() isn't what most people think of as ``local''. See Private Variables via my() for details.

[perldigious]: Also coincidentally, I'm currently in the middle of a winter storm that has dropped 1 foot of snow and is expected to drop another. I might have to adapt this for customers/vendors who come visit and put it at the beggining of every presentation I give.
[Discipulus]: the photo was removed... Cyrano de Berjerac was not of the same idea..
[stevieb]: perldigious: video near our hq in Montreal. Here in Calgary, it's -28c... we've only got 3" of snow so far, but there are several feet in the mountains already
