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

I'm bad at naming things, so bear with me.

I would consider pairwise, but that is already used, and it also does not describe your subroutine, as it does not pair things, but takes the right neighbour of every element.

Likely Lisp has a name for that, maybe MAPCADR (for map Contents of Address, Data Register). That name wouldn't really be descriptive for anybody not knowing Lisp though.

Maybe map_right_neighbour or map_rpair, or map_adjacent are ideas. I don't think that creating a formulaic name like map_a2 (with map being map_a1, and List::Util::pairwise being map_p2) would be helpful.

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.
