What a strangely intruiging post... :-)

Ok. I'll bite... For this you need a ithreading perl (this is only tested on 5.8.0 RC1)

#!/opt/perl-latest/bin/perl -w use threads; use threads::shared; use strict; my @scores : shared = (10,10); my @ts; for my $num (0 .. 1) { my $t =threads->new(sub { battle($num) } ); push @ts,$t; } $_->join() for @ts; sub battle { my $me = shift; my $other = $me ? 0 : 1; while ($scores[$me] > 0 && $scores[$other] > 0) { $scores[$other]--; print "Bot $me hit bot $other\n"; select(undef,undef,undef,rand 0.1); threads->yield; } print "Bot $me ".($scores[$me] > 0 ? 'won' : 'lost')."\n"; }

Maybe not bare bones, but certainly bleading edge :-)

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