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

Unfortunately, it's still altering an array (or it might have been a hash) over which you're iterating and so still incorrect:

c:\@Work\Perl\monks>perl -wMstrict -le "my @colors = qw(red green blue yellow pink purple brown); my @drop = qw(pink purple); while ( my ($num, $val) = each @colors ) { if ($val eq $drop[0] or $val eq $drop[1]) { splice (@colors, $num, 1); } } print qq{@colors}; " red green blue yellow purple brown

Update: each sez:

If you add or delete a hash's elements while iterating over it, the effect on the iterator is unspecified; for example, entries may be skipped or duplicated--so don't do that.
The same obviously applies to arrays. The each doc goes on to discuss a specific exception involving delete and hashes, but still no joy WRT arrays.
