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

Your use of syntax leaves me with the impression that before Perl you only knew Haskell, or some other, lazy / currying functional language.

The major difference between Perl and these others is that Perl is eager, so any unadorned mention of a function will simply call it. Unless you use built-in functions or fancy syntax tricks, all function parameters are passed in parentheses.

Creating/returning new functions is quite possible in Perl, but the usual approach is more eager in the sense of passing around values instead of passing around functions that, at some time in the future will be called to produce the final output of the program.

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.
