There are two uses for '...' - as:

  1. part of an expression - see Range Operators
  2. statement on its own - equivalent to die "Unimplemented"; - see The Ellipsis Statement

And so...

I don't understand why '...; print 1;' exits after ellipsis and not proceeds to print (v5.28). Can someone explain?

The sequence ...; print 1; does not proceed to print, because it dies before the print, just at the ...;

I understand why 'print ...' breaks: because it makes syntax error.

Yes. Because it is not a statement on its own, it is interpreted as the infix range operator, which lacks arguments - so "syntax error".

perl -le'print map{pack c,($-++?1:13)+ord}split//,ESEL'

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
