The expensive recursion can be optimized away. Also, you might also want to specify the "&" prototype to also allow map-like syntax.
sub scanl(&@) { my ($f, @rv) = @_; $rv[$_] = $f->($rv[$_-1], $rv[$_]) for 1..$#rv; return @rv; } my @rv = scanl \&divide, 64, 4,2,4; -or- my @rv = scanl { $_[0] / $_[1] } 64, 4,2,4;

Finally, you could use $a and $b instead of $_[0] and $_[1], but that would prevent the use of existing functions directly. If that's not a problem, using $a and $b can be done by assigning references to *$ap and *$bp after doing

my $pkg = caller(); my $ap = do { no strict 'refs'; \*{$pkg.'::a'} }; local *$ap; my $bp = do { no strict 'refs'; \*{$pkg.'::b'} }; local *$bp;

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.
