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

I'd probably work that out as a dispatch table instead:

my %STATES = ( sent => sub { . . . }, pending => sub { . . . }, waiting => sub { . . . }, procrastinating => sub { . . . }, delayed => sub { . . . }, ); # Make 'pending' and 'waiting' the same thing $STATES{pending} = $STATES{waiting}; # Later $STATES{$status->state->name}->();

It's faster than a speeding regex. And I personally think dispatch tables are sexy.

I wanted to explore how Perl's closures can be manipulated, and ended up creating an object system by accident.

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.
