It took me ages to understand why and how to use the with keyword in python, until I realized it was an at attempt at recreating block-scoped variables.

I think I already had a similar discussion where LanX pointed out that python variables are lexically scoped as well, but the scope they are lexically bound to is the function, not the block. (perl decided to do block-scoped variables, but you could also imagine limitting the scope to a single expression. For example in push @out, {A => $one, b => $two} while my ($one, undef, $two) = some_function())

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.
