in reply to Using Number Ranges in a Dispatch Table

The map trap. Run this:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; my %oops=( A => 1, map { $_ => 2 } ('B','C'), map { $_ => 3 } ('D','E'), F => 4, ); print Dumper(\%oops);

Look at the output. Then add ( ) around each map expression:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; my %oops=( A => 1, (map { $_ => 2 } ('B','C')), (map { $_ => 3 } ('D','E')), F => 4, ); print Dumper(\%oops);

    Bless you!

    I thought the technique itself should be sound, and the solution something simple, but I didn't realize it would be this simple!

    Thanks!

    HTH,

      No need to double up on the parentheses
      (map { $_ => 2 } 'B','C'), (map { $_ => 3 } 'D','E'),
        If we're being nitpicky :) no need to create a lexical block for map:
        $ perl -Mstrict -MData::Dumper -we'my%h=( (map +($_=>2), "B","C","D"), + one=>1 ); print Dumper(\%h)' $VAR1 = { 'one' => 1, 'D' => 2, 'C' => 2, 'B' => 2 };

    But isn't this always the case when you're dealing with statements that take lists as arguments?

    # Ooops! print join ",", @foo, "\n"; # Ooops! print grep /o/, @foo, "Hello world!\n"; # Ooops! print table{ map { tr(td($_->[0]), td($_->[1])) } @foo, ...

    My rule of thumb is, if one of these statements is followed by anything besides its argument, then parenthesize that statement's entire argument list.

    # De-oopsed. print join(",", @foo), "\n"; print grep(/o/, @foo), "Hello world!\n"; print table{ map({ tr(td($_->[0]), td($_->[1])) } @foo), ...
