( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Sounds like fun!:

# IHeartFortran.pm package IHeartFortran; use strict; use warnings; require Exporter; our @ISA = qw( Exporter ); our @EXPORT = qw/ EQV NEQV /; use overload '.' => \&_do_op; sub _do_op { my ($self, $y, $reverse) = @_; $$self{ $reverse ? 'left' : 'right' } = $y; if (exists($$self{left}) and exists($$self{right})) { return $$self{op}->(@$self{qw/ left right /}); } return $self; } sub new { my ($class, $op) = @_; bless { op => $op }, $class; } sub EQV() { __PACKAGE__->new( sub { $_[0] == $_[1] ? 1 : 0 } ) } sub NEQV() { __PACKAGE__->new( sub { $_[0] != $_[1] ? 1 : 0 } ) }

Then to use it:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use 5.010; use IHeartFortran; say 1 .EQV. 1; say 1 .EQV. 2; say 1 .NEQV. 1; say 1 .NEQV. 2;

This doesn't exactly create a .EQV. operator (for instance, spaces would be allowed:  1 . EQV . 2), but it looks good enough.

update: Actually, I think FORTRAN's whitespace rules would allow extra spaces anyway, so perhaps this is a somewhat faithful recreation anyway. Case flexibility on the other hand...

Good Day,

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.
