Not sure what Python is implementing with that pattern, but I know it doesn't have block-scope, OTOH nesting functions is easier there.

So many things which are just blocks in Perl become named functions there, even lamda is useless for that.

But no need to copy their limitations.

My suggestion would be to apply attributes or explicit use

sub :test something { my :TEMPDIR $tempdir = shift; # or my :FIXTURE $tempdir = shift; # or use fixture qw/$tempdir/; #... }

This offers plenty of possibilities at compile time and is more flexible than Python's approach.

edit

and I'd certainly put test-subs into their own package, if they lived in the same file.

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.
