( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I have a question concerning Perl's closures.

The code below should, to me, completely work. But when I call doesnt_work @r is not initilized. 8( Which is surpising to me because perl knows that sub doesnt_work exists so why doesn't it init @r when it is called?

#!/usr/bin/perl -w { my @s=("This works\n"); sub works { shift @s} } #This works.. print &works; # Error!! # This gives an error of Use of uninitialized value in print at .... print &doesnt_work; { my @r=("Should this work..\n"); sub doesnt_work{ pop @r; } }

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.
