Although Zaxo is right, I imagine it'd be okay, too, if the condtional statements were wrapped in a sub{} and you just check the return value in the proposed if().

    You mean like the following?
    push @array, $string =~ m#stuff#g if sub { my $img = get($image); my ($height, $width) = imgsize(\$img); $height < $max_h and $width < $max_w; }->();

    Zaxo's do is more direct and has less overhead, but why not just use the following:

    my $img = get($image); my ($height, $width) = imgsize(\$img); push @array, $string =~ m#stuff#g if $height < $max_h and $width < $max_w;

    You can wrap the whole thing in curlies if you want to limit the scope of $img, $height and $width.

      Actually I was going to go out on a lim and try
      my $num = 5; if (\&add($num) { .. } sub add { my $shift = shift; my $num2 = 10; my $sum = $num1 + $num2; if ($sum == "15") { return 1; } else { return 0; } }
      But after playing through numerous attempts, I couldn't pull it off. I just figured you should be able to test the return of a sub this way, though I've never thought of trying it until now.

      "Age is nothing more than an inaccurate number bestowed upon us at birth as just another means for others to judge and classify us"


        if (\%add($num) { .. }
        if (add($num)) { .. }

        In context, it would actually be:

        sub is_image_size_ok { my ($image) = @_; my $img = get($image); my ($height, $width) = imgsize(\$img); return $height < $max_h and $width < $max_w; } push @array, $string =~ m#stuff#g if is_image_size_ok($image);
      Hi. I have another question. The variable I test with is the data caught in the match ($1). I can't get $1 to hold a value. Is there another way to do this?
      push @found_images, $get_gal =~ m#http://images\.imagefap\.com/imag +es/thumb/\d+/\d+/\d+\.jpg#g if do { my $image = get($1); print "found $1<br>"; my ($height, $width) = imgsize(\$image); $height < $max_height and $width < $max_width; };

        Two reasons:

        • You don't have any captures in your regexp, so $1 is never given a value.

        • The do is executed before the match. The match might not be executed at all, depending on the value returned by do.


        while ($get_gal =~ m#(http://{...}.jpg)#g) { my $image = get($1); my ($height, $width) = imgsize(\$image); push @found_images, $1 if $height <= $max_height and $width <= $max_width; }

        Bunch of alternative styles:

        You have to insert parens into your m## operation
        or use $&
        # update: this won't work anyways - see previous post and followup push @found_images, $get_gal =~ m#http://images\.imagefap\.com/imag +es/thumb/\d+/\d+/\d+\.jpg#g if do { my $image = get($&); print "found $1<br>"; my ($height, $width) = imgsize(\$image); $height < $max_height and $width < $max_width; };
        at the expense of speed - see perlvar, section BUGS for that.
        _($_=" "x(1<<5)."?\n".q/)Oo.  G\        /
                                      /\_/(q    /
        ----------------------------  \__(m.====.(_("always off the crowd"))."
        ");sub _{s./.($e="'Itrs `mnsgdq Gdbj O`qkdq")=~y/"-y/#-z/;$e.e && print}

[1nickt]: Corion HPs? ugh. I was impressed with Lenovo's gaming laptops; if it weren't for the red backlighting and general flashiness of the aesthetic, I might have gone with that. But all that was until I discovered that the Dell Precision line is still around.
[1nickt]: stevieb I don;t doubt that there's a difference. BestBuy has "consumer" models only on display.
[ambrus]: 1nickt: for some reason, these days they call every computer "gaming", even ones that gamers wouldn't buy. I've bought a keyboard that was labelled "gamer", despite that it has hard springs and seems to be way better for typing than for gaming;
[1nickt]: I though the gamers like that because they bash the keys so hard.
