Understanding either or both does not make the OP's code a shining beacon of clarity,

If you understand it, how can it possibly be unclear?

This is exactly the same ridiculous argument as is proffered here so often.

Yes. Of course, *I* understand it, but other people might not, so therefore, it is not "a beacon of clarity".

And if you do not understand it; just say that. Then we can point you to the documentation; and perhaps offer further examples, or a break down of why and how it works, to help you reach the understanding you are lacking.

Do not advocate the dumbing down of other peoples code, simply because you don't understand it; or you fear that others might not.

The key to understanding is not pretending the (in this case, hardly) complicated stuff doesn't exist; it is education.

Don't seek to cover it up, or hide in in a box labeled "wizards only"; explain it.

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.
