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

One of my favorite subs:

sub map_pairs(&@) { my $f = shift; my @res; no strict 'refs'; no warnings 'once'; my $caller = caller; local(*{$caller."::a"}) = \my $a; local(*{$caller."::b"}) = \my $b; push @res, $f->($a,$b) while ($a, $b) = splice @_, 0, 2; return @res; }


map_pairs { $a } qw/a b c d/; # ac map_pairs { $b } qw/a b c d/; # bd map_pairs { uc($a),lc($b) } qw/a b c d/; # AbCd

But, yes, this very much crosses the line out of "one-liner" land

Good Day,

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.
