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

I'm usually partial to this method. Of course, you might not like the fact that it searches @ISA for a class that contains the subroutine. Oh well.

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my %lists = ( 'test1' => "stuff", 'test2' => "things", 'test3' => "whatever" ); for my $i (keys %lists) { my $sub = UNIVERSAL::can(__PACKAGE__,$i) || sub { warn "Couldn't cal +l $i" }; &$sub; } sub test1 { print "New message for test1\n"; } sub test2 { print "New message for test2\n"; } __END__ New message for test1 Couldn't call test3 at - line 13. New message for test2

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