I'm trying to automate building a dispatch table - or at least, to minimize keystrokes.

Please suggest ways to achieve the desired result:

use strict; use warnings; my %dispatch = ( normal => sub{"$_[0] Normal dispatch"}, map( {$_ => sub{"$_[0] Sub returns $_"} } qw| Uno Dos tres|), ); print $dispatch{"normal"}->(0),"\n"; # 0 Normal dispatch (as expected) + print $dispatch{"Uno"}->(1),"\n"; # WANT: "1 Sub returns Uno" print $dispatch{"Dos"}->(2),"\n"; # WANT: "2 Sub returns Dos"
This currently prints:
0 Normal dispatch Use of uninitialized value $_ in concatenation (.) or string at .\test line 5. 1 Sub returns Use of uninitialized value $_ in concatenation (.) or string at .\test line 5. 2 Sub returns
Also - is there a NAME for what I am attempting ? "Early evaluation of $_" ?

                "Avoid strange women and temporary variables."

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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).
