Perl 5
while <STDIN> { ...

In Perl 5, the parens are not optional. And please use a monospaced font for code :).

dot/underscore
String Concatenation from . to _. Note: whitespace is neccessary.

Only if there's a \w character next to it. $foo{bar}_$foo{bar} will be possible, but $foo_$bar will not (or at least not DWIM).

'for' is now a shortcut for 'foreach'.

I don't know if shortcut is the right word, but currently, for and foreach are exactly the same. That is, foreach (EXPR;EXPR;EXPR) and for (LIST) work.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
