in reply to given/when one case prefixes another

I have several cases that end the same way.
Turn the same way into a procedure, and refactor your code...

    The short amount of code and large about of local variables involved makes that awkward.

    I did end up changing the code, separating out the common stuff by making pre-tests before all that, so it was even more uniform.

      > The short amount of code and large about of local variables involved makes that awkward.

      why?

      for ( 1..2,"a".."b") { ifnum(); ifchar(); print "\n" } sub ifnum { if (/1/) { print } elsif (/2/) { print } else { return } print " is number"; } sub ifchar { print && goto CONT if /a/; print && goto CONT if /b/; return; CONT: print " is character"; }

      OUTPUT:

      1 is number 2 is number a is character b is character

      Cheers Rolf

      UPDATE: changed ifnum() to elsif-clauses.
