( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

...and is it a good idea? I found today in one of my own programs:

use strict; use warnings; #... #... my $s; # declared, but uninitialized #... #... $s .= some_expression() for @some_list;

And Perl said nothing. Quick check shows, that those of "combined assignment operators" which can be classified as "adders", or which assign (and thus return) their RH argument, if LH argument is uninitialized (i.e. +=, -=, .=, |=, ^=, ||=, //=) (well, negated in case of -=, of course), do not produce a warning. While others do. Therefore, it looks like it was done on purpose. It seems DWIMish, and thus maybe a right thing to do, but is it documented, at least?


In reply to Some "combined assignment operators" are exempt from "uninitialized value" warning. Is it documented anywhere? by vr

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
