( [id://3333] : superdoc . print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I know about the first, but it wasn't possible here and also turns ugly when you have a multilevel call somewhere in that pile.

I was actually thinking the second is as good as I can do in this case. What I didn't like about topicalizing with a for in that case is that for one, I still have to mention the object for every method call, although at least it's only $_ now. And worse yet, I still need a temporary variable for every widget, even when it's a widget I don't care about having access to later (scrollbars often fall in this category f.ex).

By rearranging the program to use this snippet I managed to throw away about 4 out of 5 of my variables. That's more than a little win in clarity in my book.

But thanks for the suggestions. :-)

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.
