If you think that a question deserves a useless answer, then why bother answering?

Furthermore we were given exact input and an exact desired result. What additional detail could have made the question any clearer?

My attitude is that unless I am willing to provide an answer that I believe will be helpful, I won't answer. When the question indicates to me that the questioner may not know much Perl at all, my definition of a useful answer becomes very detailed. A higher level summary is OK when I think the questioner will understand it.

And a final note. Your answer had a severe error. You cannot possibly do exactly what the questioner requested using symbolic references. I'll leave it as an exercise for you to test and/or read documentation to discover why.

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.
