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

Of course, nowadays I'd write it in Perl 6, taking advantage of constants, aliasing, lazy mappings over infinite lists, string interpolation of code, automatic command-line interfaces, parameter defaults, countdown sequences, and indentable heredocs:

constant @bottles_of_beer := ('No', 1, 2...*).map(->$n{"$n bottle{'s' if $n ne 1} of beer"}); sub MAIN(Int $max = 99) { for $max...1 -> $n { say qq:to<BURP!> @bottles_of_beer[$n] on the wall, @bottles_of_beer[$n]. Take one down, pass it around, @bottles_of_beer[$n-1] on the wall. BURP! } }

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.
