You need code tags so your [0] shows up...

Actually I like runrig's solution better than mine, it still goes through all the options, but it can be very simply tweaked to return which fields were empty, which is quite useful in this case. Your way will work, but since the calls for the data are retrieved via methods, and not a data structure, your way still has to call them all to be successful. You could do it otherwise, but then you would lose genericity. For something like this I prefer either a few lines of code in the prog, or a sub like yours that you pass params and a list of fields, but as I said, its not so generic any more....

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