in thread Perl oddities

You can't make core Perl do this

Did I say we should change Perl to allow this? No. Do you understand the premises of this thread? brian was asking for what people consider oddities of Perl thinking. Now I'm sure any oddity has its reason for being odd (after all, it's there the way it is because someone put it there, and not because Larry has a piece of radioactive material next to his computer and he's just watching how the rays mutate Perl) - but that's not the point.

I expect Perl to DWIM (just like it does in many other things), and if on my system select undef, undef, undef, 2.5 waits for about 2500 milliseconds, then there's no reason to assume sleep 2.5 can't.

[Lady_Aleena]: Um, what?
[james28909]: check is is data or hash or array and do tasks then return needed data
[Lady_Aleena]: james28909, you might want to look at the other two on my scratchpad.
[james28909]: after you send to a sub, you can check if it is array or ref ect with ref
[james28909]: check if it is a hash or an array ect with ref in one sub.
[james28909]: like all the subs calling get_data get_array get_ect, you could just use get_data. once you send the data to get_data, check if it is a hash or an array ect. and do functions for each, in one sub
[james28909]: that looks like it would be alot more work than just renaming the sub though lol
