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

And when i write something like that i usually change it to something like:
my %seen; my @unique = grep {not $seen{$_}++} <FILE>; chomp @unique;
Or something similar. It might not be the best way to do it, but it has one advantage...

It has nothing to do with using %_. It's mostly because i'm very wary of changing $_ in map, especially since i recently got very burned by attempting such a thing...


update: at prompting, i'll mention that one could write that as:

my (%seen, @unique); chomp( @unique = grep {not $seen{$_}++} <FILE> );
however, i think that would iterate twice as well. Then again there's that point about premature optimization... ;-)

Update 2: after doing a benchmark, i've found that the map solution is the fastest, followed by the one-line chomp and last is the two-liner. The one-liner is sufficiently fast enough that i would still prefer it, although for readability and maintainability i might still go with the two line version. To each their own...

Thanks demerphq for the learning experience... :-)

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.
