  • Your code won't always compile. PPCODE cannot start with variable declarations as it can be preceded by non-declarations.

    PPCODE: int i; f();
    should be
    PREINIT: int i; PPCODE: f();
    PPCODE: { int i; f(); }
  • Your snippets don't handle magical variables (e.g. $1, %ENV) except sometimes by chance. e.g.

    say lengths1(substr("abc", 0, 1)); # 0
  • lengths1 uses SvLEN when it should be usingSvCUR. e.g.

    say lengths1("abc"); # 16
  • Your snippets suffer from The Unicode bug. e.g. After fixing the above problems,

    $_="\x{A0}"; say lengths1($_), "=", length($_); # 1=1 $_="\x{A0}\x{2660}"; chop; say lengths1($_), "=", length($_); # 2=1
  • lengths1 uses type-based polymorphism —something which should be avoided in Perl— and does it "poorly". e.g. After fixing the above problems,

    say lengths1(456), "=", length(456); # 0=3

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
