You're both inspirational, guys++. However, it seems to me that you ought to put the padding at the end of the array; with the exception being that if the number of columns divides the length of the array with no remainder then you don't add the padding.

Also I think that the splice on each iteration is wasteful, so I'll just change the indexes so that each row comes out correct.

sub map_nbsp (&@) { my ($codeblock, $cols) = splice @_, 0, 2; splice @_, @_, 0, (' ')x$cols if @_ % $cols; my $rows = int @_/$cols; map{ $codeblock->(@_[$cols*$_ .. $cols*($_+1)-1]); } 0 .. ($rows)-1; } my @tabular_data = map{ 1000+int rand 8999 } 1 .. 9; print table( {border=>1}, map_nbsp{ Tr( td( \@_ ) ); } 4, @tabular_data );

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.
