Actually, the if being evaluated first is exactly what we would want in any case. You are missing the implication of the behavior, however. The variable, besides being localized which is unexpected (until one realizes that data scoping is done at compile-time in this case), also becomes static; that is, it retains its value between calls, which is unexpected behavior for a local via my variable. See iakobski's reply in this thread for more details.

[Tanktalus]: Discipulus: I should be working on an interview test right now. Well, I kind of am, but keep getting myself distracted :)
[Lady_Aleena]: marioroy, nope, that IS the error.
[Discipulus]: oh to be distracted PM is still a wonderfull place
[Tanktalus]: Problem is, it's a test for another monk - as in, another monk letting me interview for his company :)
[Tanktalus]: He might see me here... :D
[Discipulus]: it's me? ;=)
[marioroy]: Lady_Aleena could it be a quoting issue? I just tried find with -exec on the command line. find . -name "*.pl" -exec ls -l {} \;
[Tanktalus]: No, I know who he is, nice try. But if you're hiring, let me know :)
[Tanktalus]: Lady_Aleena: yeah, I can reproduce your issue, it's confusing alright :)
[Tanktalus]: I'm sure it'll make perfect sense once we figure it out :)
