in thread what would you like to see in perl5.12?

Actually, the main reason Perl5 doesn't have nested statement modifiers is that noone submitted a patch for it.

About the only way to get your wish into Perl5 is to actually go do it. A single person writing a patch for nested modifiers increases the chance to get it added to Perl a million times more than a thousand perlmonks wishing for it in a thread.

    In many cases, I'd agree with you. This, though, is something people seem to have a real hangup over. The patch is pretty trivial (albeit writing tests is less so). But now that Larry has changed his mind, it should be an easier sell. (pause). There, the perly.y changes took about 45 seconds. Anybody want to help write tests?

[shmem]: stevieb: in my case, it's just light controlling via some chip from the arduino family, and a couple of MPR121 sensor chips
[shmem]: well finally.
[stevieb]: nice! I just finished a GPS "take me home" device last week, and did a bunch of software updates to it yesterday. I also created a pseudo chip with an Arduino to simulate an IC, where it responds to register read/writes over the I2C bus...
