in reply to Re: Re: scalar my vs list my
in thread my $var = ''; vs. use constant VAR => '';

At the risk of straying further, its ok to do this isn't it:
my ($filename, $filemode, $opmode, $filetype) = ("/path/file", "immolate", "seek", "image/gif");
Ignore me: I really should get into the habbit of reading the last paragraph of peoples' posts.

Re^4: scalar my vs list my

    What about this unruly specimen:
    (my ($filename, my ($filemode, my ($opmode, my $filetype)))) = "/path/file", "immolate", "seek", "image/gif";
    The one thing that has bugged me about my() was the way it used to cling to the real block, and not the virtual block. As in:
    for (my $n = 0; $n < 100; $n++) { # ... (Stuff) } # ... (More Stuff) for (my $n = 0; $n < 100; $n++) { # ... (Stuff) }
    IIRC, there used to be a condition that generated an error for the second declaration. This seems to have been fixed, thankfully.
