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

As a general thing don't use $_ where you can instead use a named variable. Names are vital pieces of documentation that help write correct code and facilitate maintenance by that future stranger who has to deal with your code.

In this case it would highlight the fact that the $_ content is being set during the for loop execution and maybe make you ponder what that implies for the content of the variable when the sub is actually called.

Even better, take the sub out of line. That fixes the immediate problem and also makes the business logic of the loop clearer, especially if you give the sub a sensible name.

Premature optimization is the root of all job security

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.
