( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
So lets suppose it's "only" needed for the case foreach(@array) which isn't an iterator but dealing with a flattened list, right?

I don't think so, @array could be tied to an iterator via Tie::Array and IIRC there are already modules on CPAN exploiting this "backdoor".

FWIW it also offers some syntactic sugar to implement your desired feature for a static @array, by designing a sub which returns a tied array-ref wrapping the static one:

for my $var ( @{ guard_last(@array,my $last) } ) { say "IS LAST" if $last; say $var; }
edit

And I'm pretty sure this won't work with Perls older than ~5.10

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.
