Your "closure" sub isn't actually a closure; to be a closure it would not only have to access outside lexicals (like yours does), but also be anonymous. What you have works anyway because you don't attempt to have several independent swap subs each of which has its own private state.

BTW, the reason why this doesn't work: $result =  $head. " er glad " . $result while( my $head = &swap ); ... is that the parsing works left-to-right, and so $head has to be declared by the point where it is first seen in scanning, not where it would first be touched in execution.

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.
