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

I have some code which looks like this:

foreach my $block ($self->get_blocks) { my %data = map { $_ => $block->$_ } qw/ package code setup teardown /; eval <<" END"; package $data{package}; \$data{setup}->(); \$data{code}->(); \$data{teardown}->(); END $self->_croak($@) if $@; }

Frankly, I don't like the eval there because it obfuscates the code and breaks syntax highlighting. What I really want is something conceptually similar to this:

foreach my $block ($self->get_blocks) { package $block->package; eval { $block->setup->(); $block->code->(); $block->teardown->(); }; $self->_croak($@) if $@; }

That's much easier to read and it's regrettably a problem I face all of the time. Is there an easy way to force code to run in a different package when I don't know the package until runtime?

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:

  • 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.
