in reply to Prototypes and hand-written MMD

From what I've read, you would need (&@). 'perldoc perlsub'
The interesting thing about "&" is that you can generate new syntax with it, provided it's in the initial position:
sub try (&@) { my($try,$catch) = @_; eval { &$try }; if ($@) { local $_ = $@; &$catch; } } sub catch (&) { $_[0] } try { die "phooey"; } catch { /phooey/ and print "unphooey\n"; };
Although I'm not quite sure it would work.

update: 2006-01-10 00:06:08 PST The prototype magic that allows you to avoid a comma only works with codeblocks (just like do/grep/map), so I'm pretty sure now that you can't avoid it.

I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).
