( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I'd suggest a different call sequence for "yoink()":
yoink( \@arr, $var ); # pass an array ref and a scalar
The sub definition could go something like this, if you don't mind making a copy of the array in order to do the work:
sub yoink { my ($arr_ref, $kill_pattern) = @_; my @out_arr; for (@$arr_ref) { push @out_arr, $_ unless (/^$kill_pattern$/) } @$arr_ref = @out_arr; }
The "yoink" could also use the "splice" function (see perldoc -f splice) to edit the array in place; I suspect the "optimal" choice would depend on array size and number of elements being removed -- with big arrays, doing just a few edits will go best with splice, but doing lots of edits might go quicker using selective copying to a separate array. (For small arrays, there won't be a noticeable difference.)

update: IO's solution is better than mine, of course. (I just forgot that I should've known better...)

  • 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.
