Remember how in your previous thread I mentioned that the global symbol table is, itself, a hash? So here's the strategy: grep the global symbol table's keys for names that match the pattern " /Sel\d+Ttl/". That's all the variables you're looking for. Next, iterate through those 'keys', dereferencing the global symbol table to get at the values held in those key names (variable names). Here's an example in action. Remember, I warned you previously this is a road to perdition. I'll see you in hell. ;) (just teasing)

no strict qw/vars/; ( $sel1, $sel2, $sel3, $sel4, $sel5 ) = ( 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 ); my $sum = 0; $sum += ${$::{$_}} foreach grep /sel\d+/, keys %::; print $sum, "\n";


Update: I realize that you could just dereference the individual keynames, as in  $$_, within the foreach loop, but I left the use of the global symbol hash in the code so that future maintainers would know without a doubt that there is something going on here that needs further investigation to understand. $$_ isn't obvious enough to cry out, "I'm a symbolic ref! Beware!"

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.
