in reply to Perl print statement + HTTP request

What you are thinking of is some kind of a closure, like this:

my $make_output = sub { my ($Registration, $Rank) = @_; return @{ $Data{$Registration}->{Name} }[$Rank], "\t"; }; print $make_output->($Registration1, $Rank1), $make_output->($Registration2, $Rank2);

Though I guess that you might be able to simplify your code by using techniques such as OO.

Update: The following code shows what an OO variant would look like. Maybe you are trying to do something completely different; but according to your short line of code, I imagine that you could probably use this example.

my $data = Data->new( ... ); print $data->make_output($Registration1, $Rank1), $data->make_output($Registration2, $Rank2); # class definition package Data; sub new { # set up data object # ... } sub make_output { my ($self, $Registration, $Rank) = @_; return @{ $self->{$Registration}->{Name} }[$Rank], "\t"; }

    Exactly what i was looking for and a straighforward method. Anyone have any idea about the HTTP request part? For me it seems it would not matter but I want to make sure.
