playing with this code I found to serve auth requests for ncftpd, I'm wonder if there's a more elegant way to collect the values from pack,
original code
# cut from ncftpd_mysql_authd-1.1.tar.gz # Unpack the authentication message ($mType,$state,$duplicate,$rAddr,$hostname,$ipstr,$lAddr,$cfname +,$connectTime,$username,$passPrompt,$passwd,$uid,$gids[0],$gi ds[1],$gids[2],$gids[3],$gids[4],$gids[5],$gids[6],$gids[7],$gids[8],$ +gids[9],$gids[10],$gids[11],$gids[12],$gids[13],$gids[14],$gi ds[15],$gids[16],$gids[17],$gids[18],$gids[19],$gids[20],$gids[21],$gi +ds[22],$gids[23],$gids[24],$gids[25],$gids[26],$gids[27],$gid s[28],$gids[29],$gids[30],$gids[31],$gids[32],$ngids,$restricteduser,$ +homedir,$denied,$allowed,$quotaHardkB,$quotaSoftkB,$quotaHard NumFiles,$quotaSoftNumFiles,$quotaFlags,$ncftpdPrivate,$authdPrivate) += unpack('N N N a16 a64 a32 a16 a64 N a64 a256 a64 N N33 N N a128 N N N N N N N a256 a256',$decoded);

In reply to how can I collect x many elements from an array? by rfb

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.
