in reply to calling subroutines from variables

Just a thought, though probably not the most secure...

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my @list_o_subs = ('one','two','three','one','two','one','three','two' +); { no strict 'refs'; for(@list_o_subs){ &{$_}; } } sub one { print "called sub 'one'\n"; } sub two { print "called sub 'two'\n"; } sub three { print "called sub 'three'\n"; }
called sub 'one' called sub 'two' called sub 'three' called sub 'one' called sub 'two' called sub 'one' called sub 'three' called sub 'two'

I really should read more thoroughly before I post... This is basically what Bloodnok suggested.

"I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who endowed us with sense, reason and intellect has intended us to forego their use." -Galileo
