Yes, though we didn't have reduce operators back then, nor did we have infix min and max that would allow you to say
for @list { $min min= $_; $max max= $_; }
But [minmax] @list might be what the OP really wants.

And to answer tye's question, min and max are multiply dispatched, so it depends on the types of each pair of arguments. Non-comparable values probably produce an error, but any ordered type will work if used consistently.

(And my grandparent response was probably bogus, since junctions are really only for doing boolean logic, not pulling out actual values. But given that I was very sick four years ago, I'm not surprised...)

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.
