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

This is a good idea, although I think I may have made the problem statement over-specific—I'd really like to be able to handle any circular reference, not just a reference to an array of several copies of a single variable. Thus, maybe the appropriate thing to do would be

sub switch_var { tie $_[2], to => $_[1]; } package to; sub TIESCALAR { bless \$_[1] => $_[0]; } sub STORE { ${$_[0]} = $_[1] } sub FETCH { ${$_[0]} }
(There's some package out there already on CPAN that uses the to package for similar effect, but I can't find it. UPDATE: It's Tie::Util. Also, the functionality that I've described is quite similar—indeed, maybe identical—to that provided by Tie::Coupler.)

I wonder if there's a non-tie-based solution? I might have to do switch_var several times, and going through many ties could get quite slow.

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