I think it's likely this technique would also work for you.

In fact, more than just likely...

sub from (&$) { use Devel::Callsite qw< callsite context >; use Scope::Upper qw< reap UP >; my ($iterator_source) = @_; # Uniquely identify this call, according to its lexical context... my $ID = callsite() . context(); # Install the iterator... state %iterator_for; $iterator_for{$ID} //= $iterator_source->(); # Install destructor for iterator at end of caller's block... reap { delete $iterator_for{$ID} } UP UP; # Iterate... return $iterator_for{$ID}->($_[1]); } for my $limit (reverse 1..5) { while ( from{countdown($limit)} my $a ) { print "$a: "; } print "\n"; } sub countdown{ my $val = shift; my $iter = sub { if ($val--) { $_[0]=$val; return 1; } return; # stop iteration }; return $iter; }

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