in reply to Limit loop


  • use the LIMIT term of split: @favs = split /~~~/,$favorites, 25;
  • use a counter inside the loop, and last when the counter is above 25: state $counter=0; last if ++$counter>=25;
  • Replies are listed 'Best First'.

      To nitpick my own: the split-with-LIMIT put all the remaining favorites with ~~~ between (#25-30 in my example) in slot#25, which isn't what I intended. I changed the limit to 26, then dropped the last element if there were more than 25.

      The code below shows that failure, plus the fixed version, plus the working counter-based solution.
