in reply to A Macro System for Perl?

Is this the solution to my problem? I've been trying to write a Modulino, and wondered what to do if it calls exit...
Tried that:
#!/usr/bin/perl -w sub testrun() { my $r = run('noexit'); print "ret: $r\n"; } sub run { my $noexit = shift; my $retorexit = $noexit ? \&return : \&exit; &$retorexit(1); } testrun();
...but got
Undefined subroutine &main::return called at ./foo line 10.
retorexit could indeed be a macro...

      2 letter reply... Could it be that I was too terse?

      I meant obviously:

      macro retorexit() { if ($noexit) { return $_; } else { exit $_; } }

      As I see this as a good example of a useful macro, the only other way I can interpret your reply is that you know an obvious other way to do this elegantly.
      May I ask which?


        Oh sure, that could work. Except that this conversation happened 6 years ago! And went no where!
