Hello QM,

Another — possibly heretical? — option is to make max an inline function using a module such as macro:

#! perl use strict; use warnings; use macro max => sub { $_[0] > $_[1] ? $_[0] : $_[1]; }; my $x = $ARGV[0]; my $y = $ARGV[1]; my $m = max($x, $y); print "max is $m\n";


0:05 >perl 17 12 max is 17 0:05 >perl -MO=Deparse Compiling by macro::compiler/0.06 ... sub Digest::base::new; sub Digest::base::clone; sub Digest::base::add; sub Digest::base::digest; use macro ('max', sub { use warnings; use strict; $_[0] > $_[1] ? $_[0] : $_[1]; } ); use warnings; use strict; my $x = $ARGV[0]; my $y = $ARGV[1]; my $m = $x > $y ? $x : $y; print "max is $m\n"; syntax OK 0:05 >

Hope that helps,
