in reply to Caffeine and its delivery to monks in need


I love this node! This really amused me how much this great community of Perl hackers are determined to make everything possible with Perl.

I had to add to this thread, so here's my attempt:
my $i = $caffeine_level; for ($i = 0; $i < 100; ++$i) { push (@monk_needs,$caffiene); }

- wil

    my $i = $caffeine_level; for ($i = 0; $i < 100; ++$i) {

    The first assignment is useless, as $i's value is immediately overwritten. The loop is inefficient, as for simple loops like this, a Perlish loop is faster and easier to write: for (1..100). Yes, I changed it from 0..99 to 1..100, because 1..100 looks better and you're not using the iterator variable anyway.

    - Yes, I reinvent wheels.
