ugly hack - pruning an array by value by checking each element sequentially

@deck=(0 ... 51); $card=32; prune_deck($card, \@deck); print join("\n",@deck); sub prune_deck ( my $dupe = shift; # we assign $dupe to the id of the card we just +pulled my $deckref = shift; my @remainder; # a scratch array to hold what's left for my $card (@{$deckref}) { $card eq $dupe ? next : push(@remainder, $card); # save curren +t card if not the one we pulled } @{$deckref}=(undef); # empty the deck push @{$deckref}, @remainder; # push back the remainder 1; }

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
