in reply to while loop question

You can always wrap your while loop in a simple block with a label and use last LABEL

So something like this :-

use v5.14; use warnings; my @l = (0..5); sub test { my ($match) = @_; LOOP: { for my $v (@l) { if ($v == $match) { say "found"; last LOOP; } } # fell off the bottom say "not found"; } } test(4); # found test(7); # not found

    Nice ideas. The trouble is, as well as wanting to be able to say last LINE (or LOOP) I want to be able to say  next LINE if $1 < $start_point; and your solution doesn't offer that possibility.

      Of course it does :). It works in just the same way as using next/last in any nested loops.

      OUTER: { INNER: while(1) { next INNER if this(); last OUTER if that(); } }
