splice ARRAY, OFFSET, LENGTH, LIST splice ARRAY, OFFSET, LENGTH splice ARRAY, OFFSET This function removes the elements designated by OFFSET and LENGTH fro +m an array, and replaces them with the elements of LIST, if any. The +function returns the elements removed from the array. The array grows + or shrinks as necessary. If LENGTH is omitted, the function removes +everything from OFFSET onward. The following equivalences hold (assum +ing $[ is 0): Direct Method Splice Equivalent --------------------------------------------------- push(@a, $x, $y) | splice(@a, $#a+1, 0, $x, $y) pop(@a) | splice(@a, -1) shift(@a) | splice(@a, 0, 1) unshift(@a, $x, $y) | splice(@a, 0, 0, $x, $y) $a[$x] = $y | splice(@a, $x, 1, $y); The splice function is also handy for carving up the argument list pas +sed to a subroutine. For example, assuming list lengths are passed be +fore lists: sub list_eq { # compare two list values my @a = splice(@_, 0, shift); my @b = splice(@_, 0, shift); return 0 unless @a == @b; # same len? while (@a) { return 0 if pop(@a) ne pop(@b); } return 1; } if (list_eq($len, @foo[1..$len], scalar(@bar), @bar)) { ... } It would probably be cleaner just to use references for this, however.

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.
