in thread Longest repeated string...

japhy,
Thanks - which is why I said this deserved an entry in "Perl Idioms Explained". I could argue that there is no assignment going on in:

while ( @array ) { ... } # or print "Array is empty\n" if ! @array;
but then we could discuss the difference between lists and arrays and it wouldn't be worth it. I think I was able to get the OP to understand even if I wasn't completely accurate. I do think it would make for a good entry in "Perl Idioms Explained".

Cheers - L~R

    If you don't, I will. (Make the PIE node for this idiom, I mean.)

      japhy,
      I am sure you understand it better than I do. I often understand things well enough to use them but not well enough to explain them to others. Be my guest.

      Cheers - L~R
