Secondly, why are you using a C-style for loop on the inside when you can just say

I imagine because he has 1 list of names, and he wants 10 at a time. Your code doesnt do that at all. (Sorry ;-)

But i agree with you that the 3 arg for is a bad call, especially considering his mistake with the initializer. Personally i would do this:

foreach $heading (@headings) { print $heading; print "".shift(@names) for 1..10; # the "". might not be needed, cant + remember :-) }
But its a little hard to say considering we dont know the constraints. For instance are there for sure a sufficient number of names?

Writing a good benchmark isnt as easy as it might look.

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.
