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

The only time I used : lvalue was in writing the following subroutine:

sub set : lvalue { @_ == 1 ? $_[0] : set($_[0]{$_[1]},@_[2..$#_]); }

..which is used to set values at any depth in a recursive hash structure, like so:

use Data::Dumper; sub set : lvalue { @_ == 1 ? $_[0] : set($_[0]{$_[1]},@_[2..$#_]); } my $h = {foo => 1, bar => 2, baz => { troz => 3, zort => 4, poit => { qux => 5, quux => 6, }, }, }; print Dumper($h); set($h, qw/baz troz/) = 42; set($h, qw/baz poit qux/) = 17; print Dumper($h);

In this particular case, doing data verification wasn't overly useful, but I can definately see when it might be. While I'm not convinced that using $_ "won't break any existing code," it seems to be the most perlish choice to use.

perl -pe '"I lo*`+$^X$\"$]!$/"=~m%(.*)%s;$_=$1;y^`+*^e v^#$&V"+@( NO CARRIER'

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
