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

though you might prefer to avoid strict vars in one-liners
I like to pretend that I don't use strict and warnings on oneliner because it lets me use the full power of unconstrained perl, but trully 95% of the time I just want to be able to use variables without declaring them (4.999% are for being able to leave a word unquoted. The rest is for shooting myself in the foot)

But this is where Windows is clearly superior to Linux, because you can use ' to be able to use undeclared variables where Linux would require the twice boringer ::

perl -Mstrict -E "$'x = 2; say $'x" 2
Or if you're a true smartass, you can just limit yourself to using only _, a and b as variable names :P

Title:
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.
