You can generalize this into a more useful routine by allowing the user to provide optional subroutine refs that will be called when:<bl>
  • A has something that B doesn't
  • B has something that A doesn't
  • A and B have different values
  • A and B have same values </bl>

    See Algorithm::Diff for an example of passing in such subroutines. And you should also provide for an extra scalar that will be passed to the user subroutines, so the user can provide context to them without using globals.

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